Research by Professor Natasha Quadlin cited in New York Times
Assistant Professor Natasha Quadlin's work was cited in a recent New York Times article "Why Woman, but Not Men, Are Judged for a Messy House"; which discusses house work volume, gender division, and social standards related to messiness. The article concludes that although gender roles are rapidly fluctuating, expectations about housework based on gender are slow to change. The additional time that women spend on unpaid household labor is a root of gender inequality — it influences how men and women relate at home, and how much time women spend on paid work. You can read the full New York Times article here.
The NYT article draws from a publication in the journal Gender & Society by Dr. Quadlin and Dr. Long Doan (University of Maryland), titled "Sex-Typed Chores and the City: Gender, Urbanicity, and Housework". Congratulations Natasha!
