Audio: KPCC Air Talk: Impact of dividing household labor on coexisting with your significant other

KPCC logo

A recent article in the Washington Post referenced a study from the Families and Work Institute and PriceWaterhouseCoopers that showed same-sex couples divide up work based on preference rather than gender roles or power position in the relationship. It also showed that in straight couples, those who earn or work less were often responsible for the more stereotypically female jobs like cooking and cleaning.

In this edition of Air Talk, host Larry Mantle discusses the subject with Andrew Solomon and callers to the show.
