Most women interviewed by the South China Morning Post yesterday confirmed they spent more time doing housework and caring for children than their partners. Mrs Chan, 46, works as a saleswoman in a shop with her husband. She also does the housework when she gets home, after 9pm. 'It's only my husband and I at home now and, of course, he doesn't help with the housework,' she said. Although she has so much work to do, Mrs Chan does not complain: 'I don't get much leisure time, but I don't mind. All I want is to have a stable and secure life. I don't ask for much to be happy.' Mrs Fung, who is in her 40s, took things a step further - she quit her job as a banker to be a housewife when she started a family. 'I wanted to take care of my daughter so I quit my job. I do all the housework and I take my daughter to school and to her extra-tuition classes,' she said. 'After my husband goes to work and my daughter to school, I can relax. I don't think I have too much work to do. I can handle everything. I'd like to have more time to do some voluntary work though.' And while men said they sometimes helped with the housework, they prefer to leave it to the women. Leung Wah-tak, an antiques dealer in his 30s, said: 'My wife is a housewife, so she does most of the work. I do help out, even though it's not a man's job. I probably do about 4 per cent of the work.' Predictably, he has a lot of leisure time. 'I like to go fishing with my friends or go out.' Shop owner Law Chun-loi, 36, said: 'I don't do any housework. My wife does everything. After work, I usually just watch TV.'
