Haitian Family

There are not very clear-cut roles within Haitian society where gender is concerned as, while men are conventionally the ones in charge of being the breadwinners, Haitian women work too and can often be found as the main financial support of their families. Still, while women work outside of the home, they are, all the same, expected to take on the traditional female roles of housekeeper, cook and child-minder. A large percentage of low-income Haitian families are of the common-law variety.
