Millennial men are more accepting than ever, but they still won't do laundry

•, Adrianna Rodriguez

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, there are 109,000 more women in the workforce than men.

However, a Gallup poll reports that women are still more likely to do laundry, clean the house, do grocery shopping, prepare meals, wash dishes and make decisions about furniture and decorations – even among younger generations who are reportedly more egalitarian as ever.

Although this may come as a shock to progressive-thinking millennials, experts aren't surprised. According to the World Economic Forum's Global Gender Gap Report, current trends indicate that it'll take at least 208 years for the U.S. to achieve true gender equality.
