Ali's response is sufficient. It is noteworthy to mention that in Islam the notion of family curse does not exist. The Quran says: قُلْ أَغَيْرَ اللّهِ أَبْغِي رَبًّا وَهُوَ رَبُّ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ وَلاَ تَكْسِبُ كُلُّ نَفْسٍ إِلاَّ عَلَيْهَا وَلاَ تَزِرُ وَازِرَةٌ وِزْرَ أُخْرَى ثُمَّ إِلَى رَبِّكُم مَّرْجِعُكُمْ فَيُنَبِّئُكُم بِمَا كُنتُمْ فِيهِ تَخْتَلِفُونَ ...

The view that "it is obligatory to obey your farther (and grandfather)" expressed in owari's answer is a very common view (probably even the dominant Muslim view on the issue).

Well, duties such as cooking, cleaning, etc... are not fard. So it is not mandatory for a woman to do these tasks but she will be rewarded if she does so.

In other words,...
