Defying Stereotypes

Defying Stereotypes

The Mediterranean Institute of Gender Studies, under the scope of the project “Breaking the Mould: Promoting Gender Equality in Cyprus”, has drafted and designed a questionnaire with close-ended questions to examine the working patterns among women and men employees in Cyprus. 572 questionnaires were distributed to a representative number of Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) in order to examine the impact of existing measures that have been put in place to help reconcile work and family life; and look into the differences in attitude and behavior between women and men in relation to domestic tasks and care responsibilities.
 

For example, to the question if their spouse is working 93.36% of women said that their partner is working, while only 85.37% of men answered the same. Another important finding to note is that there is a pay gap between women and men holding the same positions. As for the hours that men and women spend doing household chores (i.e. cooking, washing, cleaning, doing the laundry, grocery shopping and more generally household maintenance duties) 47% of women answered between 3-4 hours, while 34% of men said they only spend 1-2 hours on related housework. For more information regarding the survey and to download the results, please visit the project’s website here: http://www.breakingthemouldcy.com/research/.

 

The project is funded by the European Commission and implemented by the Ministry of Justice and Public Order, the National Machinery for Women’s Rights, the Office of the Commissioner for Gender Equality, the Ministry of Education and Culture, the Mediterranean Institute of Gender Studies and IMH.  The project aims to encourage companies in Cyprus, and particularly SMEs, to implement simple and family-friendly measures such as more flexible working arrangements for men. The awareness campaign is targeted specifically to men in an effort to help diminish the stereotype that domestic work does not fit in with the traditional image of masculinity.
