Five generations needed for equal share of domestic tasks

Five generations needed for equal share of domestic tasks

It will take “at least five generations” for men in Portugal to equally share domestic tasks with women. According to a new study, most women also admitted they are always or almost always “tired” due to household chores. The study highlighted that if contributions by men in household tasks in the last generation continue to evolve at the current pace, a further five or six generations will be needed to achieve equality in couples where both have paid work.
