Respect and valuing both genders can only benefit both men and women equally. Males who have not been exposed to men who value and respect women, in the family and in the community, struggle to learn those behaviours that enable them to have positive enjoyable and meaningful relationships with women. Role modeling and communication skills are learned by witnessing those behaviours and interactions within cultures and society. Women equally learn behaviours and access esteem and positive relations with others through mature role modeling from men and women in their lives. This ideally occurs in the immediate family group and the wider family and community.
It is important that men and women both learn to respect and value each others needs, dreams and desires. It is important that men and women role model enjoying the differences as well as working out the differences. This can only be a win win situation to fulfilling relationships for both men and women.
