Join Dr. Jess Alberts of Arizona State University for a discussion on the contributors to unequal divisions of domestic labor and strategies that can help address them.
Dr. Jess Alberts, Arizona State University
In this session, Dr. Jess Alberts explores contributors to unequal divisions of domestic labor and examines strategies that can help address them. With most women entering the paid workforce and high housing costs leading to more shared living arrangements, conflict over the division of labor is a concern for many. Consequently, disagreement over household tasks is one of the major reasons given for relationship conflict among those who cohabitate.
