Dad’s who do Housework Raise Daughters who Aim for Ambition and Aim for Less Gender-Sterotypes

This may be old news, but an interesting paper suggests that fathers who do more housework around the house raise daughters who don’t aim for typical gender-stereotype jobs later in life.  The father was key to raising daughters to aim for gender-equal aspirations.  Yet, it isn’t just to believe in gender-equality, but to actually do the work.  A father who believes in gender-equality and feminism, yet doesn’t contribute to the house chores gives an implicit message to his daughters that housework is a woman’s job.  The paper is long, but you want a really quick synopsis, go here.

About shaunmiller

I am a Ph. D student at Marquette University. The primary purpose of this blog is to get my ideas out there, and then have other people scrutinize, critique, build upon, and systematize beliefs. This blog will sometimes pertain to what I'm learning in my classes, but it will occasionally deal with non-classroom issues that I'm thinking about as well.
