Gender, Time Use, and Change: The Impact of the Cut Flower Industry in Ecuador
AbstractThis article uses survey data from Ecuador to examine the effects of women's employment on the allocation of paid and unpaid labor within the household. I compare a region with high demand for female labor with a similar region in which demand for female labor is low. The comparison suggests that market labor opportunities for women have no effect on women's total time in labor but increase men's time in unpaid labor. The increase in men's time in unpaid work reflects women's increased bargaining power in the home. Copyright 2002, Oxford University Press.
