Haitian society is often categorized with four basic parameters: economic, socio -occupational, education and political. It is a matriarchal society, although, the man has the ultimate control. A Haitian proverb says that "women are the central pillar of the family, of the community, and of the Haitian society in general. They comprise more than 75% of the informal work force, although their rights are often overlooked. In a family, the women are not only responsible for the children and the home; the economics seem to dictate them to earn a wage. Married women in Haiti were considered minors until 1979. 'Plasaj' is the most common marital relationship in lower-class communities, (although it is not legally accepted by the government). Under this relationship, the partners in a marriage enter into an agreement beforehand where the husband agrees to take responsibility to provide an earning and a house for the wife and the female partner agrees to undertake all household chores except the heavy ones. Several 'Plasaj' relationships are not uncommon and polygamy is accepted among males. Haitian society is no more stagnant as it was before. The country is continuously becoming urbanized. The weight of the past takes heavy toll on the daily lives of all Haitians. The country's legacy of slavery and colonization, corrupt leaders, tyrannical rulers, natural calamities all affect and have shaped Haitian society as it stands today.
