Hello! To be the "sole breadwinner" in a household means that you are the person who is earning all of the money, and who is financially supporting the household. The sentence you gave as an example is a little odd -- it would be more correct to write, "was given the label of sole breadwinner". Let me know if you have any more questions about what this word means. =)
