Who said doing laundry is a 'WOMEN ONLY' work?

Nobody likes wearing dirty clothes irrespective of one being a man or a woman, right?
Then, why only women should clean up the mess while men munch on their chips comfortably lying on the couch?

Look look, Here are some statistics you surely don't wanna miss out on-

-> More than 2/3rds of Indian women feel, there exists inequality at home, between men and women*.

-> 76% of Indian men feel, laundry is a woman's job*.

->  85% of working Indian women** feel they have two jobs, one at work and another at home*.

->  73% of married Indian women feel, a man prioritizes relaxing over helping with household           chores*.

->  More than 2/3rds of Indian men prefer to watch TV than to do the laundry*.

->  77% of Indian men, depend on women for doing the laundry*.

Aren't these facts astonishing? They sure are.

Thanks to Ariel 's survey by AC Nielsen in Mumbai, Delhi, Chennai, Hyderabad & Bangalore, in November 2014. 

It's high time to breathe in the air of change, ladies, It's time to let men handle their own work like we do ours. No one is superior or inferior to the other anymore.
We ourselves need to be the change if we wish to see it around us.
It's starts with ME, with YOU, with US!

So, the next time your man complains of why the laundry isn't done, tell him you aren't his servant. Be polite, be respectful, be lovely as you always are.
Tell him if he wears his clothes himself, he can clean it himself too. What else did God give him those two hands for? 

And Men, stop acting like God because you yourself know, you aren't one.
We all are humans and it's time to behave like one too.

Once men and women together start doing laundry and other household chores, the workload falls to half and there's more time for drives, movies, good food, dates and fun.
Won't you like it that way?
You sure would.

So, let's march forward and make gender equality in every aspect our prime motive, our responsibility and I promise you that day ain't far when we'll achieve it like one happy family of proud Indians!
