What do you understand by ‘sexual division of labour’? Give some examples.

Answer:
It is a system in which all work inside the home is either done by the women of the family, or organised by them through the domestic helpers.
It is reflected in most of the families. Women do all the work inside the home such as cooking, cleaning, washing clothes, tailoring, looking after children, etc. and men do all the work outside the home.
It is not that men cannot do housework; they simply think that it is for women to attend to these things.
