Abstract

A person observing what men and women do today would see obvious differences in the way they use their time. Looking at men or women, it would be seen that some individuals devote more hours to market work than others. Those that allocate more time to market work generally allocate less time to work at home. The tasks undertaken differ appreciably, even among groups of men or women allocating the same total amount of time to work at home.
