Smock discusses gendered division of domestic duties

a PSC In The News reference

"Juggling act: Why are women still trying to do it all?" - NBC News. 01/14/2014.

Pamela Smock says that working women not only do more house work and child care than their male partners, but they do more "almost invisible" work such as planning family and social activities. How to lessen the load? Smock says women need to bring their husbands into the delegation of housework "as partners for the long-term."
