Working women in Australia are refusing to share household chores because they think they do a better job, according to a new survey.

It found 86 percent of women would rather do the laundry themselves to ensure it was done right.

The Wringing out the Future survey by Gwyneth Howell of the University of Western Sydney, on behalf of Biozet Attack Ecosmart, targeted more than 600 working women in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne.

"The workload between men and women at home remains largely one-sided," Howell said.

Women are doing twice as much housework as their partners, taking on 86 percent of the laundry, 76 percent of the cleaning, 71 percent of household finances, 78 percent of the cooking and a whopping 91 percent of the parenting.

More than eight out of 10 of those surveyed said there was more pressure on them than their mothers at the same age in terms of career, lifestyle and household tasks. For mothers, 42 percent felt their workload increased by up to 60 percent after they gave birth.

"While women are under the pump at work and at home, hiring a chef, butler and personal assistant is not the quick-fix solution," Howell said.

"The research found that two out of three women want to excel at work, at home and also contribute to their local communities . . . they prefer to apply a 'Get it done right the first time' attitude to everything they do," she said.
