So, why is there a mothers' movement happening? Why are mamas mad? Let's look at the hard, cold facts. The University of Wisconsin's National Survey of Families and Households found that the wife does 31 hours a week on average of housework versus the man's average of 14 hours. For stay-at-home moms, they do 38 hours of housework compared to 12 hours done by their husbands each week. When mom works full time, those numbers go to 28 hours versus 16.
The ratio for childcare is even worse, a staggering five to one. Moms working full-time do 11 hours of childcare compared to three hours a week done by their husbands. For moms who are not working, they do 15 hours of childcare compared to two by their husbands. One sociologist involved in the study said this ratio is no different than it was 90 years ago.
