More than a Labor of Love: Gender Roles and Christmas Gift Shopping
AbstractThrough a field study of 229 men and women, the effect of gender-related variables on Christmas-gift-shopping patterns was explored. Survey results suggest that women are more involved than men in the activity. However, men are likely to be more involved if they hold egalitarian gender-role attitudes. Overall, the study indicates that, while Christmas shopping may be a "labor of love" to some, it is most widely construed as "women's work." Copyright 1990 by the University of Chicago.
