Men And Women Work Equal Time In The Job And Home

From "Women's 'double shift' of work and domestic duties a myth finds new research" from the London School of Economics:
Feminists are wrong to claim that men should do a larger share of the housework and childcare because on average, men and women already do the same number of hours of productive work. In fact, if we consider the hours spent doing both paid work and unpaid household, care and voluntary work together, men already do more than their fair share, argues LSE sociologist Catherine Hakim in a special issue of Renewal: a journal of social democracy.
A copy of the study is available here.
