Pairity is a mobile application designed to help new couples move towards more equal distribution of time spent on household chores, while also establishing stronger, happier and more balanced relationships through mediated communication and awareness. The app walks couples through conversations to clarify what is important in their home, understand their current allocation of household responsibilities, and establish goals. It then helps them remain cognizant with the aid of a physical module which functions in conjunction with their app.
Pairity is one instantiation of a technology designed with the promotion of gender equality integrated into the design process, seeking to prove that designing for gender equality is an inherently good design practice.
