A new study finds that fathers who help with household chores, are more likely to raise daughters who find work in more 'non-traditional' career fields.

This is all according to a new study from Psychological Science, a journal from the Association for Psychological Science. 

According to the new study parents who share dishes, laundry and other household chores plays a key role in helping shape a gender attitude in their children.  Fathers who share these duties are more likely to raise daughters that consider work in fields generally not thought of as traditional for women.
