An ardent subscriber to MADE says:
“When I come home from work, I must cook dinner for my husband and children, clean up the house including all the mess my husband and children create, wash any cloths that have to be washed even if I am using the washing machine; I still have to watch over it, I wonder how women who don’t have a machine cope with washing. As if those chores aren’t tiring enough, I have to help the kids with their assignments, bath them, and put them to bed. By the time I am done for the day, I feel like fainting”.
It is estimated that about 1.5 billion working women of our era face this overwhelming “second shift,” as do many men too. Surveys on the other hand show that men often evade doing domestic chores. Women characteristically bear the impact of all of this, whether they work outside the home or not.
Thumbs up to our MADE women.
