By way of introduction, I will present the biological and cultural explanations of gender differences and I will introduce the main feminist currents. Then, within the framework of the second feminist current and in the light of the theory of doing gender, I will focus on the sharing of work in the household and in the labor market and I will associate this gender division of labor with gender stereotypes.
