Juliana Menasce Horowitz reports on the disparity that mothers feel between the workload they're responsible for at home, and the domestic chores of their husbands. Although 59% of all parents in homes where both work full-time say the split is even, mothers are twice as likely as fathers to say they do more.

Horowitz analyzed the American Time Use Survey to decide just how mothers and fathers spend their time: 

"This analysis shows that while full-time working moms spend more time than full-time working dads on parenting and household tasks, the difference is modest. For example, mothers who work full time spend an average of 11.9 hours per week, or 1.7 hours per day, on housework, compared with 1.2 hours per day among fathers who work full time."
