Impacts Of The Mental Load Of Mothers

The fact that mothers end up assuming this mental load has consequences: 

  • Mothers are more stressed, tired and less happy than fathers;
  •  When women thought the distribution of housework was unfair and perceptions of each partner’s contribution differed, it led to marriage problems and increased the likelihood of a split; 
  • Many women feel they cannot physically or mentally put in the extra hours demanded by many workplaces, so the gender pay gap continues to widen. 
  • Women make up the majority of part-time workers and in turn are less likely to get pay rises or promotions.
