Study: Women working full-time responsible for majority of housework

It has been claimed women who work full-time are still responsible for more than two-thirds of housework.

A European-wide study has been carried out and has found Swedish women have the most helpful partners.

"One of the things that can contribute to more gender equality at home would be crucial periods in life for example paternity leave," said Anke Plagnol who helped carry out the research.

"So most of the time it is the woman who stays home with the baby

"In Nordic countries you see a lot more uptake by men as well that they stay at home wit the kid."
