Housework and the 1950’s

How much has our view on housework changed since the 1950’s?

A recent study of the average Australian household by the Australian Institute of Family Studies has examined Australian households and how women spend their time at home, the study found that women spend nearly twice as much time doing housework than men.

Women with children aged 5 and under spend up to 32 hours a week on housework and women with children over  5 years old , still doing up to 29 hours a week and if you include a full time job women often work up to 88 hours a week!

Women are achieving goals and targets in the workplace and often surpass their male counter parts but in seems women are losing the battle on the home front with 62% of employed women, with children saying they always feel overworked, tired and rushed.

So the answer to the question:  “How much has our view on housework changed since the 1950’s?” Not much! It’s seems that society is still stuck in the 1950’s in regards to the household cleaning, so come on guys take up the broom and dish cloth and help the team!
