Spain to Launch App That Will Tell Wives If Their Men Are Doing Enough Housework

Spain has announced plans for an app that will tell wives if their men are doing enough housework.


The new software will track how many hours a family member spends doing chores and aims to eliminate the gender gap in housekeeping.


The free app is being created, according to ngela Rodrguez, Spain’s minister for domestic violence and gender equality.


The minister claimed that it would make it possible for both sexes to track the amount of time they spent on housework.


The administration anticipates announcing the app this summer as part of its “co-responsibility plan.”


‘We women spend more time on domestic tasks than men,’ Rodriguez said, as reported by The Times.


The minister was speaking at a conference in Geneva discussing discrimination against women.


The minister presented a report at the convention on Spain’s women’s rights.


According to Rodriguez, less than 15% of males claimed to do the majority of housework in a poll conducted by Spain’s National Statistics Institute. Nearly 50% of the women who participated in the survey claimed to do the majority of the housework at home.


Even in Spain, this inequality has led to legal disputes. A Cantabrian court ordered a man to pay his ex-wife more than €23,000 (nearly £20,000) in April 2017 for the housework she performed during their six years of marriage.


A Velez-Malaga court ordered a businessman to pay his ex-wife €204,624.86 (about £180,000) earlier this year in recompense for 25 years of unpaid domestic work, based on the minimum salary throughout their marriage.
