Minutes of leisure in the OECD

The OECD has done some interesting research, showing that there is a leisure time gender gap. Namely, in most industrialised countries, men have more leisure time than women.

I can’t see the report, which presumably explains the gap, but at least in Italy it is because women take on more of the housework burden, according to the Wall St Journal.
