Guys i am new in gender studies, but somethings is really puzzeling to me. In Gender, nature, and Nurture from Richard A. Lippa there are comment about role of gender stereotypes in making "typical male or female work in home at so on": in our culture - typical women should take care about children and man should make money.
How ever my question is: Do gender stereotypes are product of culture traditions and history of your society or do gender stereotypes main reason for roles differenciation by genders?
Edited detail: it was mentioned that I underestimated how broad this theme actually is. So I decided to actually to prefer a Western culture point of view.
