Housework: let's come clean about who does the chores by Barbara Ellen.
The gist: even though people are doing less housework than they used to, women are still doing more than men. (I know, you're shocked, right?)
First up, I liked that she makes no apologies for tackling what is so often derided as a middle-class or privileged women's issue, but straight-up calls the housework battleground "this incredibly important arena (equality in your home – where you live)".
Housework is not about the amount of hours: it's about ratios and percentages – the true mathematics of domestic parity. Even self-described housewives should not be working nights and weekends if their partners aren't.
What of "the future", when most chores will be done by robots and machines? She is doubtful (as are we all), but:
Even if it does happen, it's obvious who'll be doing all the button-pressing. Even if we get that farcical two hours down to a preposterous two minutes, it's evident whose preposterous two minutes they'd be.
Sing it, sister.
