Diana Karibova, a 24-year-old marketing manager at the American Chamber of Commerce, and her husband Giorgi share parental duties for their newborn son Alex. By tradition, Georgian men are not intimately involved in the day-to-day care of their children. But exceptions - such as Giorgi, who works two jobs but still tries to help at home when he can - exist.
Diana says women of her generation in Georgia are largely learning the wrong lessons from the West: they are taking full advantage of the freedoms and excesses of the West without tackling the responsibilities, such as studying and working hard to build a career.
"Women have a more complicated life than men. So if, as a woman, I want to have a career, I have to work [at it]. It depends on me," Diana says. "Do I want to work or do I not? My husband can tell me, 'Sit at home if you want, please.' I have to manage my household work. But if I want to work, I have to be more like I was at school - manage to study and to have fun."
