Man-Yee KAN (Oxford University) – “Lagged Adaptation in the Association between Women’s and Men’s Gender Attitudes and Housework Time in 24 countries”
Abstract : We examine the trend of the second demographic transition in Western and East Asian countries including as it expresses in the association between gender attitudes and housework participation. Using data of the International Social Survey Program between 2002 and 2012 for 24 countries, we find that at the individual level, the association between gender attitudes and housework hours has become stronger, signifying that in most countries the second demographic transition is in place. We find that as the lagged adaptation theory predicts, the association between gender attitudes and housework participation has been strengthened between 2002 and 2012 for both women and men. The results also suggest that the association between gender ideology and the division of domestic labor countries reaching an equilibrium but at different stages in the 24 countries. The gains in gender equality at home have been reversing in social democratic and conservative welfare regimes, but in liberal as well as south-European and East Asian countries, gender ideology and the domestic division of labor have both become more egalitarian.
