Good morning and welcome to the Life Review. Do you know how many men do housework? Recently, a European official group tried to discover what people’s ideas were about the women’s movement. As part of their survey, they asked many men and women the question, “Who does the housework?” The men answered very differently from the women! The housework they asked people about was: preparing meals, washing dishes, cleaning the house and baby-sitting. 48% of British husbands said they did this kind of work. 51% of Danish men said they helped in the house. 15% of Italian men said they did the housework. But there was an interesting point of view from the wives. According to British wives, only 38% of their husbands helped in the house. And Italian wives complained that their husbands hardly ever helped. The Italian and British men didn’t tell the truth! The group found that Danish men were the most truthful husbands. Their answers were the same as their wives’.
