Power, Autonomy and Division of Labor in Mexican Dual-earner Families
Power, Autonomy and Division of Labor in Mexican Dual-Earner Families examines the levels of decision-making power and autonomy of Mexican married women within the household, and the effect that several individual and context characteristics have on each of these two dimensions of women's status. By combining quantitative information from a Mexican national Survey and qualitative information from in-depth interviews to members of marital couples, Irene Casique provides a general overview of Mexican women's status in the household. A central question of this study is whether or not Mexican married women's economic participation brings about changes on the wife's relative power and autonomy within the household, as well as on the husband's contribution to housework and childcare.
