Topic 1: “There’s no such thing as having it all: Gender, work and care in the age of insecurity”

In this article, the author discusses the boundary between earning a living and taking care of the family. Most people want both a satisfying career and a rich family life but it is very difficult to have our cake and eat it too. Children from the gender revolution have 3 options. They include partaking in the neo-traditional format, the self-reliance option, or egalitarianism. Which will or do you employ and why?

Topic 2: “No place like home: the division of domestic labor in Lesbigay families”

In this article, the author argues that egalitarianism is a myth in Lesbigay families. Explain. Do you agree with the author’s findings? Why or why not?
