Repost: Report: Dads who share housework have ambitious daughters

I've contributed to the Orlando Sentinel's Moms at Work blog since 2010. The blog is changing content management systems and my old posts will no longer be available to the public, so I'm reposting them here, in the order that they were originally posted.

Dads, want to make sure your daughter is ambitious?

Then make sure you do a good job at sharing housework.

A University of British Columbia study has determined that egalitarian dads who share housework well have daughters who are more ambitious and have broader interests than the daughters of dads who aren't so open-minded, according to the Boston Globe.

The study found that while moms and dads both affect their children's ideas about gender roles, dads have an outsized influence on daughters when it comes to those daughters' ambitions and career choices.
