A majority of Indian women want men to actively help in household chores during festivals, reveals a survey. www.shaadi.com, a matchmaking service, conducted a survey to understand what Indian men and women think about roles in marriage, especially during festivals. When women were asked ‘During festivals, do you think men and women have equal responsibilities?', 66 per cent said ‘No' and 34 per cent said ‘Yes'. When men were asked the same question, 75 per cent said ‘Yes' and 25 per cent said ‘No'.
Women want men to share responsibilities during festivals
The data suggests a clear disparity in the point of view of men and women when it comes to sharing responsibilities. However, the men are no longer expecting women to handle all responsibilities, especially during festivals. When asked, ‘Do you think it's a woman's responsibility to do all the household activities?', 100 per cent of the users (both men and women) said ‘NO'. As a follow-up, they were also asked, ‘Do you think men and women should share equal responsibilities in household activities?', 100 per cent of the users (both men and women) said ‘Yes'.
