Worked in medicine for years, the last 13 or so in an all female practice. All sorts of cultural issues that varied depending on the part of India, how much exposure to others outside culture, whether family was involved (increased pressure for traditional roles, worse if the upper generations were involved). It was acceptable that we care for the pregnant woman as long as it didn't interfere with what the man felt was right. We could care for the children but if the child was male that became an issue as they grew past kindergarten. There were more than a few cases that the male felt he had dominion over all females (as did his young son), including the person caring for his wife. It could get very interesting when the man assumed he (or another male) would get what he wanted.
This held true for men who worked in the business world at a fairly high level. I always wondered how they got on dealing with 'mixed' groups in their job. It wasn't that they were malicious. They truly believed that it was their rightful place and responsibility to be in charge, just as it was the females place and responsibility to defer. Many of them had little if no flexibility. The concept of considering a female's point of view, needs or wants was inconceivable. Even if they were assimilated into this culture when stressful situations arose they would revert to needing to be in charge.
This wasn't everybody. There were some people who did not have this attitude at all and many of them told me it was because the others came fro different areas of the country. If you are considering business and it will be people based, you would do well to investigate the culture in the area you are entering into.
