Here’s a short movie out of Japan which brings awareness, and answers, to the following question: “Who carries a heavier load? Women or men?”
The assumption often times is the man. Naturally, when it really comes down to it, the hard labor, the heavy lifting and long hours working is all on the male. But then again, is it really? Let’s take a closer look.
People on the streets of Tokyo were surveyed on the subject of who literally carries the heavier load. Out of 100 men and women, it was revealed that women carried loads of 7.2kg, which was twice as heavy as loads carried by men on a regular weekday. Also, 18% of women interviewed carried loads of over 15kg!
