(p.127) Chapter 5 Gender At Home
Framed by Gender

Cecilia L. Ridgeway (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines how the framing effects of gender on social relations in the home contribute to the persistence of inequality in the household division of labor despite changes in women's employment. Both gender stereotypes and moral schemas of family gender roles shape expectations, judgments, and behavior in the home. The chapter compares predictions of the gender frame argument for these effects with evidence about the contemporary gender division of household labor; how it varies by race, education, and earnings; and how it is affected by marital or parental status. Persistent inequality and sex typing of household work supports gender stereotypes and contributes to inequality in access to resources and power outside the home.

Keywords:   household division of labor, gender stereotypes, moral schemas, employment, earnings, race, marital status, parental status
