  • Every few months, this debate flares up.


  • It's about women who work, which is to say, most women.


  • About how tough it can be succeed at work and still feel like a good mom.


  • And we often ask, what can governments or corporations do to promote work-family balance?


  • But what if we started thinking smaller?


  • What if one part of the solution was men doing more at home?


  • Between 1950 and 2000, the share of women in the US workforce jumped from 34% to 60%.

    在 1950 至 2000 年間,美國女性在職場上的比率從 34% 激增至 60%。

  • But women were still expected to do most of the work when it came to raising kids and running a house.


  • "The second shift of women working and taking care of the home was very stressful for the family."


  • That stress is partially what led to the trope of the frazzled working mom.


  • "I don't know how she does it."


  • People started to blame working women for the high divorce rates in the 1970s and 80s.


  • And now, with fewer people getting married and having kids, it's still popular to pit working women against family.


  • "If you were a real feminist you would support housewives and see them as the heroes and women who work, wasting their time."


  • "Do you all think working moms still get treated unfairly?"


  • But while the stress of the second shift may have contributed to divorce at first, things are changing.


  • New research is showing that men and women who share responsibilities at home are happier than those in more traditional marriages.


  • "Where men become more involved in the family, they're more attractive as a partner, they are less likely to divorce, they're more likely to have children."


  • Heterosexual couples in which men do more household chores are less likely to divorce.


  • And the more time men spend with their children, the more satisfied both partners say they are with the relationship.


  • Take couples who have kids, but aren't married.


  • In those relationships, men who were more involved with caring for the kids were more likely to make the transition to marriage, compared those who were less involved.


  • So maybe someday that iconic "frazzled working mom" trope will go the way of the fifties housewife:


  • A symbol of a time when women and men, were trapped inside a narrow definition of what it meant to be a partner and a parent.


Every few months, this debate flares up.
