Fathers who do house chores boost daughters’ career aspiration

Summary: A recent study by researchers at University of British Columbia found that fathers who pitch in and help with household chores are more likely to raise daughters who aspire less traditional female oriented careers. The study suggests that daughter’s perception of how domestic duties are shared among parents plays a crucial role in shaping gender attitudes and career aspirations.
