Today, we’re reading Donner’s piece, “The Household Work Men and Women Do, and Why” New York Times and the study she cites from Gallup, ““Women Still Handle Main Household Tasks in US.” As you read, consider the following questions:
- How did the household(s) you grew up in distribute chores, family work, and household duties?
- What sorts of household work do you think goes unmeasured?
- How will you distribute household work in your future families or households?
- What does this study say about heteronormative family dynamics?
