1. Women still belong in the kitchen.
Sure it might be a first-world country full of progressive thinkers, but subconsciously Australia still puts women at home raising the children and preparing dinners. Many citizens (mainly men) are trained tradesmen that work away from home for weeks at a time leaving the Aussie mums left to manage the home. This lifestyle lends itself to traditional gender roles. About 85% of all fathers with a youngest child under the age of five work full-time, but for mothers in that category, the rate is about 19%.
