At Home, Women Rule

At Home, Women Rule | LiveScience: "Men might strut their stuff on Wall Street and on Capitol Hill, but across America women wield the power on the home front.

A survey by the Pew Research Center, announced today, finds that among 43 percent of couples the woman makes more of the decisions in the domestic realm than men do.

By contrast, men make more of the decisions in only about a quarter of all couples. And about three-in-ten couples split decision-making responsibilities equally.

The results support research published last year that found women have more power at home than their husbands. The past research was based on videos of the couples rather than self-reports about decisions, as is the case for the new study."
