Gender inequality persists in multitasking: study

NEW YORK, Dec. 1, 2011 (Reuters) — Men may be helping more in the home but working women still do more multitasking in U.S. families than their partners and are finding it stressful, according to a new study.

Whether it is housework, cooking or childcare, women do about 10 hours more multitasking in the home each week — 48.3 hours compared to 38.9 — which researchers say constitutes an important source of gender inequality.
