I think women do constantly work.
We never seem to just 'stop'.
Not even at home, our brains are wired to look at things we would like to fix or change or clean.
That is part of our nature.
We have all seen men come home, sit down and watch t.v. and zone-out.
That's a very important key for them, we are not made like that...So for us, we come home and see what needs to be done,and do it.
Answer...Yes women work more hours than men.
I'm with Jennifer on this one. When I come home it's very important for me too to "sit down and watch t.v. and zone-out." Sometimes, I do have to fight off thoughts of tidying up. But I put that down to my mother's influence. Haha.
Jennifer I did not do the study? someone more talented than me did .
And I can talk for myself, my mother my daughter-in-law(who never stops, with two little kids)My sister in laws, we all have worked very long long days.
Maybe there are women out there, who find....they just have a lot to do.
Today, I have just put in a 18 hour day, and I am 60!
It probably depends on their family setup. If they are doing a full days work and then having to do all the traditional jobs at home like cooking and cleaning and picking kids up and doing drop offs then yes they would work more.
Some do, some don't. I've seen a few studies in newspapers (if you trust them) that showed that most women still do a disproportionate amount of housework and caring for children. I find it annoying how when a man does any housework or childcare people often act as though he deserves a medal for it instead of just accepting it as him doing his fair share.
They do too! Of course I'm generalising, but this has been my experience. "I helped you do this, this and this." Helped? Helped? You live here too! Those things form part of your responsibilities as a member of this household. Why is this so challenging to comprehend?!
If you include household chores and domestics then definitely. If we're referring just to paid employment then no - men generally work more. However in saying this because I own my own business/own boss, and my partner is an employee - at the moment I am working more than him!
I just don't think you can generalise and say that one works more than the other. As Jennifer says, some do... some don't. I think it's expected that women do more work around the house than men...but it's not always the case and it definitely shouldn't be the case.
If a woman is in paid employment, she actually has TWO jobs! That, & the one she starts the moment she gets home.
I won't list the 'at home' work, as all viewing this site are WELL aware of what THAT job entails.
Suffice to say, YES, women do work more than men! It's NEVER ending!
