Abstract Lecture 2:
Although female labor force participation rates have increased significantly in the recent decades, women still do most household chores across the globe. The gender inequality in the household is harder to regulate with the help of social policies than inequality in labor market sphere. In the lecture I will discuss the gender division in childcare and household chores. I will show how the amount of domestic labor is associated with gender role attitudes and participation in the labor market across countries. Special attention will be given to the impact of COVID pandemic upon the division of household labor.
