Gender Time Use Patterns: A Comparative Study of Malwa Region of Punjab
Abstract: The present study was conducted in the Punjab state of India. This paper focuses on questions related to gender division of labor and time use patterns of work and leisure between men and women. Division of labor by gender exists in almost all the societies, both for paid and unpaid work. The nature of specialized work done by women and men differs across place, time and in some cases over the life cycle. Generalizations need to be made only after a detailed analysis in a specific social context incorporating strata and other variables in addition to gender. The paper describes how work is distributed among men and women in SNA-activities, extended -SNA activities and non -SNA activities in the three villages selected for study which are from Punjab region. Time has been measured in hours and minutes per day for all the members of the household.
