Men in Pakistan only spend about 17 minutes a day on domestic chores, as per The International Labor Organization (ILO) report.
On average, Pakistani men spend about 17 minutes per day providing unpaid domestic services for their own final use within the household, 9 minutes per day providing unpaid caregiving services to household members, and 2 minutes per day providing community and help to other households.
It is significant to mention that Pakistan ranks as the 3rd lowest among 67 countries in this regard.
On the other hand, women in Pakistan spend 231 minutes per day providing unpaid domestic services for their own final use within the household, 55 minutes per day providing unpaid caregiving services to household members, and 1 minute per day providing community and help to other households.
The report by ILO titled, “The Unpaid Care Work and the Labour Market. An analysis of time use data based on the latest World Compilation of Time-use Surveys” proves that across the world, women largely meet the majority of care needs.
It categorically reveals how do women and men spend their time differently on unpaid care work, how much time do people spend on doing paid and unpaid care work, are there any differences in time use among the regions, and how do socioeconomic factors influence people’s choices to do paid and unpaid care work.
According to an ILO report, Pakistani men only spend about 17 minutes a day on domestic chores, that's the 3rd lowest among 67 countries.

Pakistani Twitter is not a bit surprised after finding out the numbers. In Pakistan, gender roles are quite defined. Men go to work while women do the chores.
Not a bit surprised. https://t.co/d3vfciVwrB

Remember people’s dismissals of ‘khaana khud garam karlo’? Yeah… https://t.co/UOSnToZCPs
