Abstract [en]

The idea that women should take the responsibility for home and family and men should be the breadwinners is less dominant today. On the basis of a study of the division of labour within Swedish families, this is an examination of the way in which gender identity and power relations influence the negotiations between partners, given the differing interests. As this study shows there is rarely equality on this question between married or cohabiting partners, despite the dominants ideas of one or the other sex, and even when the women work full-time (the division is a lot more equal in young couples without children). The explanation of this inequality lies in the weight of gender norms and in the different expectations linked to parental roles. It is nevertheless apparent that women with greater resources in terms of education, income or professional status more often break with these norms and impose their demands concerning the division of labour within the couple.
