Further Details
Abstract Sociological survey data are used to outline the basic division of household tasks in Czech families in the 1990s, focusing on the two-income family, which is the norm. After discussing the construction of gender roles & their stereotypical reproduction in the family, examined is the household domain & its related responsibilities: in the overwhelming majority of households, all usual chores are done by women, including caring for children. In comparison with similar countries of Eastern Europe, however, the division of work in the Czech Republic is one of the most equitable. Nevertheless, such work is still not very highly esteemed. Trends among both men & women toward changing relations with household tasks & at the subjective view of the justice of the division are explored.
