Hassan, you raise a very important point. As you know, there is a vibrant global discourse on whether values are culturally determined or some values are universal. I suppose I would say (not official World Bank position)as the lead author of the report - lets ask women what they would like. Lets not make decsions for others. And in many cultures women may well prefer to have men in jobs when there is a crunch. But these values change over time and young women have different aspirations from their mothers' generation. Lets honor their aspirations.
