Blurred Boundaries: Gender and Work–Family Interference in Cross-National Context
Although well theorized at the individual level, previous research has neglected the role of national context in shaping overall levels of nonwork–work and work–nonwork interference. This study fills this gap by examining how a national context of gender empowerment affects the likelihood of experiencing nonwork–work and work–nonwork interference at the individual and national levels.
Negotiating Courtship: Reconciling Egalitarian Ideals with Traditional Gender Norms
Previous research shows that as women have increased their access to earned income, there has been a rising ideological and behavioral commitment to egalitarian relationships.

When Dad Stays Home Too: Paternity Leave, Gender, and Parenting
By drawing fathers into the daily realities of child care, free of workplace constraints, extended time off provides the space necessary for fathers to develop the parenting skills and sense of responsibility that then allows them to be active co-parents rather than helpers to their female partners. This shift from a manager-helper dynamic to that of coparenting creates the opportunity for the development of a more gender-equitable division of labor.
