“Women work much more than men’
Women all over the world work on average four years longer than men. This looks at paid and unpaid work, such as housekeeping.
This is evident from a report that gontwikkelingsorganisatie ActionAid Thursday at the General Assembly of the United Nations will be present, reports The Guardian.
The difference between the time spent at work between men and women varies from country to country. For example, a woman from, for example, the United Kingdom, 2.5 years more than a man. It has also been shown that a woman, with a life expectancy of 69 years, an average of 23 years of unpaid work.
The report must ensure that women less often are forced to take unpaid work to do. This has, according to ActionAid, as a result that women have less influence on politics, free time and generate more revenue.
“We want this not to say that unpaid work by women as well as men to be combated, since in the upbringing of children is also important,” says Girish Menon of ActionAid UK. “But we are of the opinion that the woman is too little to be respected and that there is more balance in the life of a man and a woman.”
