When discussing feminist parenting, division of labour in the home comes up quite often. Who wants to be a slave, right? Sharing housework and childcare responsibilities is an important part of women's liberation. I have a lot of mom friends who live with their kids' dads; some of them have partners that make me feel lucky to be a single mom. Others have great partners who recognize the importance of sharing work in the home.
