One woman has gone viral for her tirade against gender inequality...
As you will all be aware...
via: GettyMore often than not, chores are sadly left to the woman of the household.
Now, there's no denying that society's expectations of women have indeed been changing.
via: GettyOver the last half-century, across the developed world, more and more women have gone to work, the gender pay gap has been steadily narrowing, and fathers have spent more time with their children.
However, gender equality for women still lags in one other realm:
via: GettyTheir own homes.
Sadly, women are often haunted by the 1950s housewife stereotype...
via: GettyAnd are therefore given the bulk of household responsibilities.
It is a real issue in today's society.
via: GettyStudies have found that married American mothers spend almost twice as much time on housework and child care than married fathers do.
And, overall in the U.S., women clean more than men do.
via: GettyAmerican men did an average of fifteen minutes of housework each day, while women did forty-five, the American Time Use Study found.
The study also found that most men - seventy-seven percent - did no housework on any given day at all...
via: GettyWhile most women - fifty-five percent - did at least some.
And although things are getting better ...
There's still a long way to go.
One woman has offered her view this week.
And the internet is not happy about it.
She took to Twitter to claim she believes she should be taking care of her husband.
But people were quick to clap back.
This is most cringe worthy tweet I’ve seen in awhile. Put it right there with “I can’t wait to see my husband destroy our kids on a tube” and the ”I can’t wait to pregame with my husband in the parking lot at our daughters dance recital”— Danni Short (@Danni_Short) June 12, 2019
So you were raised to parent your husband— nothing (@Brivado) June 12, 2019
straight people yall okay?— trnug ! (@trnug) June 12, 2019
Sounds like you were raised to be his mom. 🤷🏼♀️— Spooky beybey (@AlyLud) June 12, 2019
Sooooo do you get to pursue any hobbies or passions or is your full time job being a mother to a fully grown adult man?— Sanjati 🔮🎮 is a TWITCH PARTNER! (@stefsanjati) June 13, 2019
And we wonder why so many men remain in a perpetual state of adolescence. My 11 year old son is more self-reliant than this dude.— Stephen Twelker (@vverse23) June 12, 2019
I take care of my boyfriend since we live together, but I’m not trying to be his momma. We do all the chores together and we get up together. He’s a grown man. He knows I take care of him, but he knows he needs to take care of himself. If he works, I work. That’s how it is now.— Codi (@codi_ann_25_) June 11, 2019
You laugh/cry, but I had a dude at work that told me and my (female) supervisor that if his wife wasn't around, he couldn't be expected to wake up on time to make it to work. We were like, "Um, no. That's not the way it works."— Kii says #WearAMask (@CamaroWRX) June 12, 2019
I’ve been married 30 years. Marriage is a partnership, with give and take and mutual respect for each other, not one person catering to the other. Think about the model you’re setting for your daughters.— LiberalLinda (@LSoudek) June 11, 2019

This is the realest response. Everybody’s situation is different. Being a good wife really has nothing to do with housework. Guess who primarily does the cleaning in my house? Hint: It ain’t me.— Wassup Bree? (@NotSoEasyBreezy) June 12, 2019
Here's the Tweet that got everybody talking ...
call me old fashioned, but i was raised to take care of my husband— mama b (@bklangleyyy) June 11, 2019
make his plate every night, wash his work clothes for him, make sure he’s up for work the next morning, always have a clean house for him to come home to, etc.
and that’s exactly wife i will be
What do you think?
