Using data from two US national studies of how husbands and wives allocate time to housework, Pleck determines the relative degree of overload experienced by working wives. He concludes that although overload still exists, it is on the decline, because 'men's time in the family is increasing while women's is decreasing'. The book raises many significant questions and issues relevant to studies of contemporary society, by examining the ways in which changes in the family occur due to women's employment.
