Theories of Family Labor as Applied to Gender Differences in Caregiving for Elderly Parents.
Finley, Nancy J.
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v51 n1 p79-86 Feb 1989
Examined four popular hypotheses of family labor--time-available, socialization/ideology, external-resources, and specialization-of-tasks--to explain gender differences in caregiving to elderly parents. Data from adults with mother over age 70 revealed that these theories of gender differences in divisions of family labor did not adequately explain caregiving for the elderly. (Author/NB)
