 Survey Finds Men Still Think Housework is a Woman's Job
A new study has found that more than a third of men still believe that housework is a job for the ladies.

The survey by cleaning experts Vileda of 1,853 men found although fathers and married men are the laziest, more than 70 per cent of all men do very little cleaning.

Another 38 per cent think domestic duties should naturally fall to women, reports The Daily Express.

Vileda spokesperson Lindsey Taylor added: "We were surprised to learn that the age-old opinions about who is responsible for the running of the home still hold weight with many men.

"We are supposed to be in an age of the 'new man' - but the men's answers to our survey tell a very different story."

When it came to women, the study revealed that two thirds of ladies believe that the extra pressures exerted by the credit crunch are actually turning their men into domestic gods.

Three-quarters said their men now clean the house more than they did six months ago.
