Diferenţa dintre genuri în alocarea timpului liber în România
[Gender Difference in Alloting Leisure Time in Romania]


  • Roman, Monica


Recent theoretical and empirical studies tend to highlight the prominent role that time plays in society, in a context of changing rhythms of work, the ageing of the European population and changing family structures. In this contribution I analyse the way time is used for leisure in Romania. I highlight the time use for creative and leisure activities in respect with gender, following the hypothesis that leisure is an important dimension of gender gap. It was used factor analysis to observe the differences existing in time use for leisure in respect with occupational status, marital status and education.
