Another important shift for men is in economic adaptation. A friend once told me that in their village, there is a huge potential for rearing of goats for milk. It is picking fast, but with one characteristic—it is a women’s business.
The explanation for that was: “How can a whole man bend that low to milk a goat?” The men would rather milk cows. It’s more dignified, but unfortunately, they neither have the land nor the money to buy some, and so they do nothing!
