Women's Employment and Housework

Women's Employment and Housework

(p.41) Chapter Three Women's Employment and Housework
Dividing the Domestic

Tanja van der Lippe

Stanford University Press

This chapter focuses on female labor market participation and its implications in the division of household work. It begins with an overview of women's employment in 33 countries: their participation rates, wage differences, and occupational segregation. It then explains the influence of women's employment on housework and examines whether the effect of women's employment on housework is different for countries that vary in welfare regime, child care polices, and gender culture. Multilevel analysis of data from the International Social Survey Program confirms that women spend less time on domestic work when they do more hours of paid work.

Keywords:   female labor market, employment, participation rates, wage, occupational segregation, welfare regime, child care policies, gender, International Social Survey Program, housework
