gender roles, housework, household division of labor 1980s
This short article on family living appeared in Broome County Livingmagazine, published by Cornell Cooperative Extension of Broome County, New York, and is part of a collection of such articles available on the Open Repository at Binghamton University. In the context of changing roles of men and women within the family, men’s role in performing household tasks such as cooking and cleaning is explored. Local wives are interviewed anonymously about their situations, expectations, and division of labor in their homes, and tips are offered for encouraging husbands to participate more in household tasks.
