Let’s Talk About…Women popping the question

Is the long-held view that it’s the role of a man to propose marriage to a woman slowly losing its footing?

More videos are popping up online showing women with ring in hand, getting down on one knee and popping the big question to their male partners.

This is especially prevalent among millennial women who are less inclined to follow suit toward tradition. But besides the generation factor, women have been breaking barriers when it comes to gender equality in a number of areas, including in relation to so-called roles in relationships.  

Are Jamaican women in line with the global trend? Watch as Loop News reporter Job Nelson and videographer Marlon Reid take to the streets of the Corporate Area to get views on the question, ‘Is it okay for a woman to propose to a man?’, in the latest edition of ‘Let’s Talk About.’
