Before you listen, think about this topic:

  • Do you think the roles of men and women have changed in the past 50 years? If so, how?
  • Do you believe there is such a thing as “women’s work” and “men’s work?”
  • How do you think the Second World War might have influenced the roles of women in Canada?

    Also think about words and topics you would expect to hear in a discussion about this topic.
