Good episode? Give it some love!
Guests: Darcy Lockman, Claire Kamp Dush

If you are living with a significant other, who does the laundry? Who cooks dinner? Who drives the kids to soccer practice? Who cuts the grass? Dividing up the chores equally can be key to a healthy relationship. But, despite the fight for gender equality, studies have shown that women are still doing the bulk of the household duties including childcare, even when they are working outside the home. In same-sex couples, chores are divvied up more equitably. This hour, we look at the division of household labor, the strain unequal duties can put on relationships, and how to divide housework fairly. Our guests are CLAIRE KAMP DUSH, a professor at Ohio State University and DARCY LOCKMAN, a clinical psychologist and the author of All the Rage: Mothers, Fathers and the Myth of Equal Partnership.
