Male Participation in Home Life: Impact of Social Supports and Breadwinner Responsibility on the Allocation of Tasks.
Lein, Laura
Family Coordinator, v28 n4 p489-95 Oct 1979
Boston-area families described the ambivalence of male responses to pressures of increased participation in homemaking. Because of different social support networks, men obtain little support and help in performing housework. Men perceiving paid employment as their primary contribution hesitate to acknowledge responsibility for homemaking functions as well. (Author/BEF)
