Responsibility for Children: The Role of Gender and Employment.
Leslie, Leigh A.; And Others
Journal of Family Issues, v12 n2 p197-210 Jun 1991
Examined role of gender in responsibility for children in 60 2-income couples, testing effect of spouses' employment hours, wife's relative income, and couple's employment profile. Found women carried more responsibility for child than did men. Only one characteristic of women's employment, number of hours worked, affected their level of responsibility, with no couple characteristics contributing to this pattern. (Author/NB)
