Using the 1995-1996 Taiwan Social Survey, this research applied major perspectives developed in the United States, the economic resources model and the gender ideology model, to the division of household labor in Taiwan, where gender norms have been strongly influenced by traditional patriarchal thinking while rapid economic growth in the past two decades has improved womenís socioeconomic status. The results show that while menís economic resources and the gender ideology can explain their housework participation relatively well, the same variables for women explained their share of the housework rather poorly. I also examined the gender display/deviance neutralization model but failed to find any supports.
