Listen again to the recording posted earlier this week. When you feel you are ready, answer the following question in the comment box.
The speaker is making a complaint. What is her opinion and why does she hold that opinion? Do you agree with her? Use details from the recording to support your answer.
Tradition is sometimes controversial. As society changes, so do the borderlines between what is acceptable and unacceptable. In some cases, public opinion on traditions about gender roles or religious observance change. At the same time, many who immigrate to a different country with its own culture struggle to hold on to the customs they have learned and valued.
How do you feel about changing traditions? Why do traditions change? Is it right to give up some cultural or religious traditions if you are in a new country? Should people practice the same traditions as their parents or grandparents? Why?
