Many young men and women ideally envision a future in which domestic labor and childcare is shared equally.
However, equality is harder to achieve than people realize. In this talk, we will discuss research on the division of labor and childcare,
including several research studies that we have conducted, in order to examine why the division of household chores and childcare
remains inequitable despite a frequent desire by both members of the couple for a more equitable division. We will also examine
whether feminist identified women are able to maintain equality after marriage and children and reveal that, although feminist women
may experience more equality than their non-feminist peers, they also often do not achieve the level of equality that they hope for.
