Dividing the Domestic

Stanford University Press

The increased participation of women in the labor market and other public spheres have changed the patterns of domestic work, resulting in a widespread pattern of men doing more housework and women doing less. A cross-national comparison helps understand stability and variability in household work in contemporary societies and the context in which these changes occur. This concluding chapter summarizes the contribution of comparative research in the analysis of household work arrangements in different societies and points out the new research findings that emerge from the cross-national study of the division of household labor.
