    Talking the meaning of "appreciate"

    Hi, teachers!

    I have a question about the meaning of "appreciate".

    In the next sentence, what does the "appreciate" mean?

    The culture appreciates a greater flexibility of gender roles.

    Does it mean values or understands?

    Thanks in advance.

    Well, it certainly can't mean "go up in value!"
    By the way, where did you find that sentence?

    If one of your friends wrote it, then you should ask him what it means. We can merely guess what he meant.
