Abstract

Childcare Responsibilities and Women’s Medical Care

Caring for children requires an ongoing commitment to their provision, growth and development, which may require balancing multiple demands and a personal sacrifice at times. While both men and women are impacted by childcare responsibilities, women are often viewed as the primary managers of their children’s care and, in general, spend as much as 50% more time providing care than their male counterparts.
