Please select 2 of the 3 questions to answer. No, you do not need to answer all 3 questions, I just like to provide options.
Please don’t forget to cite. Ex: (Last name of author, year of publication). See? It’s that easy 🙂
1. Explain Arlie Hochschild’s theory of the “second shift”. Why are women disproportionately affected by the second shift? Why do certain types of work fall to women and not always men?
2. Like marriage, how is divorce a gendered experience? How may parental duties shift in the absence of a parental figure? Provide examples from the text and/or personal experience.
3. How are the ideals of motherhood and fatherhood socially constructed? What does Medved & Rawlins’ (2013) study reveal about bread-winning mothers and stay at home fathers?
