The gender gap in time use – is it narrowing or has it stagnated?

Speaker: Joan García Román

Institution: Ramón y Cajal researcher at the Centre d’Estudis Demogràfics

The gender gap in time use has narrowed significantly in all Western societies in recent decades. However, recent studies show a slowdown or stagnation of the reduction. The seminar will present different papers on the recent evolution of the gender gap in time use, especially in domestic work. Based on time use surveys in Spain, the Basque Country and other countries, the most recent estimates and how the gap varies according to the time of the life cycle and the composition of couples, especially in terms of the relationship with the activity and education of the partners, will be shown.
