Revealing a marked gender divide in the distribution of housework during the COVID-19 pandemic, a survey reveals that a greater number of girls (39 percent) were required to contribute to housework as opposed to the number of boys (35 percent), while more boys (31 percent) had the luxury to devote their time to studying than girls (27 percent).
