Girls spend 40% more time on chores than boys, UN report finds
 

Girls spend 40% more time performing unpaid household chores than boys, according to a new report from the UN children's agency.
Unicef said the difference in time spent working amounted to 160m extra hours a day worldwide.
Two out of three girls cook and clean in the home, and almost half collect water or firewood.
They also perform more "less visible" domestic work like childcare or looking after the elderly, the report says.
