“It’s a multi-layered topic and discussion. We keep discussing and many issues will come out.. there is no one generic statement, we can make on this. I think there is some awareness and effort towards making the change.

“I am glad to support and spread Ariel’s new message which encourages Dads to #ShareTheLoad. Ariel’s own study shows that a significant number of men believe laundry and housework are a woman’s job.

So this women’s day “Gentlemen, we love the flowers but also do the laundry please,” she said.
