Claire Cain Miller of the New York Times reports on the domestic inequality among men and women, based on who does the most housework and parenting.
Although men do more around the house than they used to, the gap of at-home labor between men and women is still wide.
Before having children, housework showed no gender gap, with men and women putting in about 14.5 hours of housework a week. After having children, a woman's labor would increase 21 hours a week, while men saw an increase of just 12.5 hours per week.
What this means is extra work for women that is hard and stressful and also pushes them out of the work force. Women are taking on more of the economic risk that’s associated with a child.
