Students have options for effective chapter discussions:

Then relate these to the continued inequality in housework and child care that exists and how this perpetuates inequality in society in general. Take a position on whether social problems are constructed to perpetuate the status quo or whether they are simply social problems. Make sure you discuss both sides and how each impacts the larger societal issue of gender inequity
