According to a recent study, married or cohabiting women who work in traditionally female jobs spent more time on housework than those in traditionally male jobs, and their husbands (or partners) in female-dominated jobs did more chores in the home as well.
So, men who are in occupations where female workers are dominant, ie. teaching, childcare, or nursing, do more housework, while women who might work in the construction, tech, or sports fields do less.
These findings by Elizabeth Aura McClintock, a sociologist of the University of Notre Dame, come at a time when, no matter the industry or who’s dominating, women still earn less than men and40% of all households with children under 18 include mothers who are either the sole or primary source of income for the family.
