Abstract

This study seeks to explain a new perspective of the household division of labor by also looking into the segregation of labor by gender. While women continue to gain equality outside of the home, they are still faced with inequalities inside the home. Women in the United States perform two-thirds more housework than their mates. In addition to the differences in the amount of housework being performed, said housework is also highly segregated by gender. This study identifies the trend of “male” and “female” typed housework and seeks to explain the reasons behind both the division and segregation of household labor.
