Sample

The chart illustrates the average housework hours per week by married women in comparison with married men.

As seen in the chart, there is distinctive difference in the average hours of housework in households. In childless families, the gap of housework hours per week between men and women is not largely. Women do some 30 hours per week; meanwhile men's contribution in housework is about 20 hours.

In families of one or two children, however, the number of men's housework hours decreases to 15 hours, but women's number of housework rises even to 50. Undoubtedly, the cause of this rise is due to childcare.

And amazingly in households with three or more children, the equality becomes more distinct. Men work fewer hours than about 10 hours, but women's housework hours rise to 55 per week.

The chart shows that the inequality in housework between husband and wife should be resolved. It is important that women should be liberated from the unreasonable burden of familial responsibilities. And to get the target, men should do their share of housemaking.
