Mums and work: gender attitudes and relationships

It's sometimes said that men are from Mars and women are from Venus. In other words we think and behave as if we were from different planets. So is that true when it comes to how men and women think about work - both paid for and domestic and what does that mean for family relationships? In this episode of The Lifecourse Podcast, Lauren Bird talks about her research looking at parents' attitudes towards mums going out to work, housework and childcare and being happy in a relationship.

Lauren Bird examines the impact upon relationships and the wider family when both partners share the same attitude and behaviours towards paid and domestic duties (Dataset:  Millennium Cohort)
