WOW | What You Think

Why do women end up doing more housework and why are they the primary caretakers of children even when they are working women?

Many men still have the mindset that women are inherently responsible for the household and children. There has been some progress but it’s partial. Unless every man gets rid of the thought that housework is a woman’s job, however hard we fight for gender equality, it will still be a far cry.

The deeply rooted gendered attitude must be uprooted by men and women. The old saying ‘men and women are two wheels of a cart’ should be carried out in reality if people really believe in fair share of domestic roles, just like it is at the workplace.
