How does the division of childcare tasks influence fairness perceptions And doe relationship type and spousal time moderate this effect
MetadataShow full item record
Research on the division of unpaid labour has typically examined the role of housework. This research explores how the division of childcare tasks influence perceptions of fairness using the New Families in the Netherlands data (NFN). The effects spousal time and relationship type have on this possible influence will also be examined. Results showed that a division that is unequal for the female partner is perceived as unfairer and that this effect is stronger when couples spent little time together. No support was found for the expected effects of relationship type.
