Women's labour force participation has increased worldwide. However, women are still doing the largest share of domestic tasks in the household. This study uses data from the East Asian Social Survey, cross-national survey data set: Families in East Asia (2006). The influence of the hours that women spend on paid labour and women's gender ideology on the amount of domestic tasks East Asian women do is researched. It was found that East Asian women that spend more time on paid labour do less household work than women that spend less time on paid labour. Furthermore, East Asian women with a more traditional gender ideology do more household labour compared to women with an egalitarian gender ideology.
