Джендър измерения на разделението на труда в семейството
This article is devoted to the investigation of the changes in male and female participation in paid professional work and unpaid work in the Bulgarian family. For the purpose of evaluation of the extent of significance of this problem for working men and women with family responsibilities the question concerning the gender distribution of time for paid work and for family and the unequal division of labour between the family partners is analyzed with a view to the level of family welfare. In conformity with this the gender analysis of the paid economic activity and of the unpaid work in the household and in the family is done, based on the National Statistical Institute’s Time-Budget Survey data.
