Men Still Need to Clean Up Their Act, Women are Doing Less Housework
In a recent study released over the weekend, men are doing more housework and chores around the house and women are doing less.
But reality is, men are still doing a LOT less chores than women. According to Liana Sayer, a sociology professor at the University of Maryland, times and things have changed since 1964, but not much. In 1964 on the average woman spent over four hours a day on housework. Guys spent less than 30 minutes.
Move into the new century and a women’s chore load had dropped from four hours a day to less than 2½ hours a day. Over the same period, the amount of time men spend on housework tripled. Let's put that into prospective for you. More women are in the work-force, but ladies still performed about 1.7 times more housework than men.
Plus, things get really complicated when you add a baby or children into the mix. Bottom line is women still perform most of the chores around the house, men have taken on more responsibility but not by a lot.
In 2012, single women with no children reported doing almost twice as much cooking, cleaning and laundry as single men with no children,”
