It is evident that women without children are doing 30 hours of unpaid work compared to men with less than 20 hours. Furthermore, the Women who have 1-2 kids are doing the home works for around 50 hours a week, which is almost twice in contrast to men’s 18 hours. Last but not least, the men with 3+ Children are doing unsalaried jobs for only 16 hours, whereas the women perform the household jobs for 60 hours a week.
