Women and Men in Marriage, Work, and Parenthood.
Thompson, Linda; Walker, Alexis J.
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v51 n4 p845-71 Nov 1989
Examines way women and men organize their gender relations in families around domains of marriage, work, and parenthood through research literature review. Concludes gender specialization persists across all three domains with women most responsible for marriage, housework and parenthood, and men, for provision. Recommends greater examination of male/female actions, beliefs, and experiences within larger context of inequality. (Author/CM)
