Renata Forste was recently appointed as the director of the David M. Kennedy Center for International Studies at Brigham Young University, and as an associate international vice president.  Her research focuses on the well-being of women and children in Latin America, Africa, and the U.S. How do you divide up the chores at your house? Household chores have traditionally been a woman’s responsibility, even though today more women are in the workforce than ever. A study conducted recently shows that women spend about 14 hours per week doing housework, compared with men who only spend about 9 hours per week. Renata Forste shares about why household chores should be equally divided in a relationship.
