British men have more leisure time than women, says a new report.
The report, released to mark International Women's Day, contained survey that revealed men spent longer watching television, meeting friends, playing sport or pursuing hobbies than the fairer sex.
The Organisation of Economic Co-operation and Development, made up of the world's richest nations, said that British men ranked close behind France and America in the league table of countries where women work harder than men, reports The Telegraph.
The report said "governments and firms need to do more to tackle the gender equality gap."
The report said: "Men universally report spending more time in activities counted as leisure than women. Gender differences in leisure time are wide across OECD countries."
"The 32-minute leisure advantage for men in Britain compares with 38 minutes in the US, 33 minutes in France, 50 minutes in Belgium and 22 minutes in Germany. Italian men spend nearly 80 minutes a day more than women on leisure time. Across the OECD countries, 62 per cent of women have jobs, and women earn a fifth less than men," said the Daily Mail.
