Abstract

This paper forms part of the project “Gender, Time Allocation, and the ‘Wage Gap’†funded by the ESRC Gender Equality Network. It has been greatly improved as a result of my discussions with Professor Jonathan Gershuny. It has also benefited from comments received from my Time Use Group colleagues, participants at the International Association for Time Use Research Conference 2005, and seminar participants at the Institute for Social and Economic Research.
