Household tasks still divided on traditional lines in UKApril 18th, 2011 - 4:36 pm ICT by ANI
London, Apr 18 (ANI): A survey has shown that household tasks are still divided on traditional lines in Britain, with men doing DIY and lawn mowing while women are stuck with dusting and ironing.
The survey by delivery firm Ocado showed that sexual revolution has changed little in the average household, making it the biggest cause of arguments between couples.
The poll revealed that 93 percent of men change a light bulb when it blows, 90 percent do the DIY, 83 percent mow the lawn and 79 percent take out the rubbish.
When women were asked about their roles, 88 percent said they did the household dusting, 78 percent the ironing, 75 percent most of the cooking and 70 percent the washing up.
“It’s rather depressing that gender stereotypes still pervade in 2011,” the Daily Express quoted Jason Gissing, Ocado co-founder, as saying. (ANI)
