Moreover, almost 74% of the female participants believed they were doing the lion's share of the work, regardless of their working hours. Netmums editor-in-chief Annie O'Leary believed the findings were in line with what most of us already know to be true.
"The data speaks for itself," O'Leary said (quote via The Independent).
"That's a lot of women sharing what can, at times, be an almost unbearable burden."
In terms of why there is such a discrepancy in perceptions, O'Leary put it down to "centuries of parenting that has seen men take a backseat and women shoulder the burden."
"Yes, dads today are doing more today but—clearly—it's only a fraction of what's required," she added. "So, we all still have a long way to go."
