Today's youngsters believe the man SHOULD be the breadwinner

60 per cent of young people interviewed in a new survey believe that the ideal family should be made of a male breadwinner and a woman that takes care of the home.



The report, which is part of the Monitoring the Future project has been conducted every year since 1975, found the younger generation were more in favour of traditional gender roles than they were twenty years ago.

Despite this surprising discovery, the report also revealed that young people continue to believe in equal opportunities for women in the workplace. 76 per cent believed that women should have the same job opportunities as men in 1975. That number grew to 89 per cent by 1994 and has since remained high.
