The Rush Hour: The Quality of Leisure Time and Gender Equity Bittman, Michael en_US Wajcman, Judy en_US 2021-11-25T12:34:29Z 2021-11-25T12:34:29Z 1999 en_US
dc.description.abstract The distribution of leisure time between the sexes is contested. Becker's theory of specialisation suggests that there is an underlying gender equity in leisure, while the competing view suggests that women are now bearing a 'dual burden' as both family providers and family carers. Using indicators of the quantity and quality of leisure, drawn from the Multinational Time Budget Data Archive and the Australian Time Use Survey, this paper finds some support for both views. Although men and women have similar quantities of free time, when the quality of leisure is considered the gap between sexes re-emerges. en_US
