If you need proof that we have come a long way in regards to traditional gender roles, look back at this front page news from 1994.
The Canberra Times reported on one Canberra family and the unconventional set-up they had with their four children.
Cathy Green worked full-time as a teacher while her husband Michael stayed at home with their four young children. The father was given the title Mrs Man of the '90s and was a key advertising target of the future, according to a report called Leveraging Change from the agency Mattingly and Partners.
The report identified Mrs Man and his counterpart Mr Woman, a woman who took responsibility for the traditionally male areas of family life, as the two major consumer groups emerging in the '90s.
Mrs Men were predicted to have growing consumer muscle as they increasingly became major buyers of household goods.
"Men may not be doing this at the rate many women would like, but they are becoming major users of detergents, cooking ingredients and other packaged goods," the strategy planning director of the agency, Brian Martin, said.
In the case of the Green household, the reorganisation came about after endless problems with babysitters and financial commitments. Mrs Green said: "I am not a radical feminist and it doesn't matter who does the jobs as long as they get done, but I do love coming home to a clean house every day and he is very good with the baby."
While the plan was working well, Mrs Green was pregnant again - so they were not making firm plans for the future.
