Women and children first! ....well maybe.
It's long been a tradition in the case of ships sinking at sea that women and children should go into the lifeboats first.
The kids still definitely go first nowadays -- things haven't changed that much -- but what about the adults? In the light of modern equality, does the tradition of women going first still hold water (excuse the expression)? Sorry junior, mom went down with the ship? Or is this one part of traditional gender roles that still has a place in modern society?
