Labor Division at Home and Procreational Intentions: The Case of Lithuanian Families
Namų ūkio įsipareigojimai ir prokreaciniai ketinimai: Lietuvos šeimų atvejis.
The paper is based on the analysis of power structure of the family and the family decisionmaking concerning household responsibilities, including childcare and household duties. The main results of the survey conducted in 2010–2011 indicate that the most consistent predictor of the division of domestic labor in the private sphere is the dominant gender ideology of men, and both spouses/partners’ education, sexand place of residence. Compared to men, women share greater responsibility in taking care of children and housework.
