sexes. Equity and exchange theories, which regard the domestic divison of labour as a rational solution to a common problem, are adequate for only relatively few contemporary households. Feminist theories, on the other hand, tend to explain inequalities in terms of social structures (like capitalism and patriarchy). Although they differ in the extent to which they see class relations or gender relations as at the root of these, they offer tenable explanations of gender inequalities and show how women’s and men’s positions in paid work and the family are related. However, neither they nor socialisation theory adequately explains women’s and men’s different psychological investments in family and work. Few theories have attempted to address this problem, but Chodorow and, to a lesser extent, Firestone have tried to do this and offer ways of understanding how these ‘investments’ are bound up with inequalities.
