These days

These days 5 9th Feb

Have you heard about this fascinating study comparing how household is distributed between males and females in Britain. The black Caribbean man are more engaged in the household chores than any other ethnic group in Britain.

I really like the suggestion at the end of the article that maybe a way of closing the gender gap inequality at home would be first closing the gender gap inequality at work.

 

On a different note, The Guardian has recently run a profile of Elton John, and he says about his two boys: “They are spoilt in the way they live and how they’re living, but they’re not spoilt when it comes to the rules they have to live by. They get £3 pocket money, but £1 is for charity, £1 is for saving and £1 is for spending, they get three coins and put them in separate jars.”

I absolutely love the idea of giving to charity since you are little.
