Vietnamese women work more hours than men

SunnyLv 0Aug 05

A Vietnamese woman has to work 300 hours more than a man. This has raised a critical issue in gender inequality in Vietnam. Even they work harder and longer hours, but women's income is way much lower compared to men's. Normally, after 8 hours at office, women are stuffed with chores and children, while men can spend time with friends. More working time means less time for themselves to relax and take rest. This has led to many middle-aged diseases happened for women like degenerative spine.
