Here's one for the sexism debate: Sociologists at UC Santa Barbara have concluded that women work harder than men, both at home and on their jobs.
Academicians William and Denise Bielby base their conclusions on the perceptions of 1,515 working men and women who were part of a national survey conducted by the University of Michigan.
According to UC Santa Barbara, the Bielbys analyzed data from the Michigan survey and found that women "give more time and attention to their jobs than men despite the fact that women also spend more than twice as much time on household tasks."
This analysis relied on what the 1,515 men and women said about themselves. More women than men, the sociologists said, reported having jobs that "call for considerable physical or mental effort and at which they expend greater effort than is required."
