Sažetak
Although national differences have been noted, research data show the persistence of the housework and care work division between women and men in Europe (The life of women and men in Europe, 2020 ; Cunha & Atalaia, 2019 ; Geist, 2005 ; Crompton et al 2005). This implies that a more nuanced picture of the intersection of complex representation of changes in housework and care work is needed (Bianchi et al. 2012). In Croatia, the social, economic and cultural dimensions of housework and care work have been researched sporadically (Tomić-Koludrović & Kunac, 2000 ; Topolčić, 2001, Čulig, Kufrin & Landripet, 2007). More recent results show modest changes in gender-stereotyped division of housework and care (Klasnić, 2017 ; Tomić-Koludrović et al 2018). With this paper we aim to contribute to furthering this discussion by firstly, exploring the effects of gender, class and their interaction on division of housework and care work on a sample of people living with their partners in Croatia. Secondly, by exploring the role of class, relative income, and employment status, as well as gender roles (Spence, Helmreich & Stapp, 1973) and gender-role beliefs (Kamenov, Jelić, & Jugović, 2009) in explaining division of housework and family care work, separately for men and women. Data presented in this paper was gathered through ‘Social stratification in Croatia: structural and subjective aspects’ project on a nationally representative sample (N=1000). The analysis included participants who lived with their (heterosexual) partner in the same household (total of 503: 248 (49.3%) women, 255 (50.7%) men). Results of two-way analyses of variance with gender and class as independent variables, showed that only effect of gender was significant in all three analyses: for division of household chores, childcare and care for the sick. Women were the ones to perform all these tasks more than men. Effect of class was not significant, nor was the interaction of gender and class. Regression analysis for explanation of division of household chores, childcare and care for the sick was conducted separately for men and women, with class, employment status, gender roles and attitudes toward gender roles as predictors. Results of the regression analyses for women showed that employment status was significant predictor of division of household chores and care for the sick, whereas expressiveness was an important predictor of division of household chores and childcare. Women’s unemployment/retired status and higher expressiveness predicted more household chores or care work. Results of the regression analyses on men’s sample revealed attitudes toward gender roles as the key predictor of all three criterion variables. Men who held more egalitarian attitudes were more likely to do household chores, childcare and care for sick. It can be concluded that women, just because they are women, will do more house and care work. Men, on the other hand, are not so defined by their gender, and will have more diversified pathways in participation in this kind of work. The results of this research point to the prevalent importance of gender stratification for division of house and care work in Croatia.
