About this product
- DescriptionIt's common kwledge that responsibilities in the home are t divided equally between men and women. Feminists bemoan how slowly this gender gap is changing. Sociologist Oriel Sullivan, however, focuses on the neglected topic of the processes of change, discussing changing domestic gender practices on many different levels-from changes in attitudes about gender equality in the home to the quantitative analysis of change in the domestic division of labor. His newly developed theoretical approach connects the wider discussion of gender practices within the home to the interactions and negotiations that individuals engage in on a day-to-day basis. He includes empirical evidence for change, presenting findings based upon directly comparable cross-national data from the mid-1960s to the late 1990s. This book will appeal to readers interested in gender studies, sociology, and in the changing gender equity of the home.
