How to use housework in a sentence?

  1. Vladimir Lenin:

    You all know that even when women have full rights, they still remain fatally downtrodden because all housework is left to them. In most cases housework is the most unproductive, the most barbarous and the most arduous work a woman can do. It is exceptionally petty and does not include anything that would in any way promote the development of the woman.

  2. Yue Qian:

    Overwork culture contributes to gender equality because of the expectation that men and women have to work long hours and they can not take time off, all these expectations disadvantage mothers with young children in the labor market, especially given that men contribute very little to housework or childcare in China.

  3. Shakir Parvez Shaikh:

    The lessons are interesting. We talk about how boys and girls are equal as human beings, but how we treat girls differently, for example, girls are not allowed to play cricket or watch as much television as boys because they have to do housework or because it is not safe outside for them. I didn't realize before ... I think it's unfair.

  4. Scott Schieman:

    Dividing up housework and parenting responsibilities can be tricky, especially if both partners work outside the home, and whether you define that division of labor as equal or unequal can really change your attitude toward it.
