Abstract: In Australia and other western countries, two countervailing trends relating to workforce participation have affected family life. On the one hand, there has been a surge in the workforce participation of women – including women with partners and dependent children and associated calls on fathers to play a more active role in the non-financial aspects of home making. On the other hand, the proportion of men working long hours is considerably greater today than it was 20 years ago.
