      The world might be moving fast into the vacuum of modernity but a majority of the world still functions quite traditionally as far as a house is concerned. Women still run the show there be it in Asia or Africa or Latin America, and brilliantly, too. If a man isn’t home, only a man is missing but if a woman isn’t home, the home is missing. Goes without saying that this is the norm for a little while; sooner or later, our whole species will be accepting a more gender-balanced domestic setup. Maybe, at that point, we’ll finally accept that being a homemaker is an extremely difficult task and was never compensated enough.
