82pc of Brit women still do housework despite fight for equality

A study has revealed that even though women in Britain have been fighting hard for equality, a staggering 82 percent still do the housework in their home.


London, Oct 13 : A study has revealed that even though women in Britain have been fighting hard for equality, a staggering 82 percent still do the housework in their home.

The new study into Britain's cleaning habits revealed that just eight percent of husbands and boyfriends pull their weight when it comes to household chores.

More than a third of young adults aged under 24 admit they rely on their parents to clean up after them, while two percent pay a professional cleaner.

Although men do much less round the home it would seem they are hard task masters with a third insisting "I like my house to be clean at all times", with 15 percent describing cleaning as "too much hard work".

Women on the other hand feel that, even in this day and age, the cleanliness of their home reflects on them with half saying they get embarrassed when it isn't clean and refuse to accept visitors.

Relationship expert Phillip Hodson, spokesman for the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy, said many men still regard traditional housework as "women's work".

"Many men see putting oil in the car or changing a light bulb as doing their bit around the house but still see cooking and cleaning as women's work," the Daily Mail quoted him as saying.

"You're more likely to learn certain skills if you are female yet no adult can really call themselves mature unless they can feed themselves.

"Some men's laziness and their lack of identification with housework is definitely a problem. There's no excuse for not being able to use a washing machine or cook when men can read or install Windows 7 on their computer.

"One of the problems is men usually seek more adrenaline-fuelled activities and housework is just a slog.

"Women have a stronger nesting instinct and so will naturally do the cleaning when men don't bother.

"But if women did nothing and men felt the consequences of their inaction - for example if they don't have any clean shirts to wear - things would soon change," he added.
