Australian channel apologises after 'sexist' question asked what women's and men's jobs were

Australia's Channel 10 has apologised for broadcasting a question on the quiz show 'Family Feud' which was deemed sexist.

The show's host Grant Denyer asked contestants to guess what answer 100 people had given when told to name a woman's and a man's job.

The answers included cooking, cleaning and dishes, answers for a man's job included builder, plumber and mechanic.

The top answers for most suitable jobs for women were:

- Cooking

- Cleaning

- Nursing

- Hairdressing

- Domestic duties

- Dishes

- Receptionist

- Washing Clothes

The episode sparked outrage on social media - some viewers called the question "misogynist", "sexist" and "disgraceful".

The channel has since apologised and says the answers were "not reflective of all Australians".
