Men Do 13 Hours of Chores a Week, Research Finds
Filed under: In The News
Are men unsung housework heroes? According to a new survey, men spend 676 hours a year on household chores.
This equals 13 hours a week, which breaks down to 4.7 hours on housework, 1.5 hours on "DIY" and 6.9 hours on child care, London's Daily Mail reports.
The survey of 1,000 British men also finds that 60 percent of respondents say their hard work goes unnoticed by the women in their lives because the men "don't make a fuss." In addition, nearly half of the respondents say they think women "show off more than men about the jobs they do in the home," the Mail reports.
Of course, the survey was conducted by Dove Men Care, so there could be some incentive for the brand to entice these supposed housework heroes into cleaning off their hard-earned sweat with some Extra Fresh Body Wash.
"Our research shows that modern men are becoming more vocal about the contribution they make in the home, and the popular stereotype of men doing nothing around the house is no longer accurate," says Paul Connell, brand manager of Dove Men Care.
