Task "m/v/x"

During the war, women performed work that had normally been men’s work. Instead of doing only housework, they also went to work in factories, for example. That taught them that they could also do that kind of work.

Which occupations are now done mainly by women, and which ones by men? Take turns representing one of those occupations. The others have to guess what work you are doing. Can women do ‘men’s work’ just as well as men? And what about vice versa, can men do ‘women’s work’? Why or why not?
