First the article:
“As things look today, people may be comparing bad working conditions with the image of the glamourous housewife,” gender researcher Catrin Lundström told Sveriges Television (SVT).
In a survey conducted by the Swedish family lifestyle website familjeliv.se, 45 percent of mothers indicated they wanted to be housewives.
The thought of staying home full-time to tend to household chores and children was most popular among younger mothers aged 18- to 29-years-old, with 53 percent responding that they wanted to be at home.
Among mothers aged 30- to 44-years-old, 40 percent of respondents indicated they would prefer to be at home.
But actually, only 2% of the respondents actually chose to stay at home. Primarily because of economic reasons. So well, while there is the desire, the money doesnt allow it to happen. Curious phenomena nonetheless, i would have thought that this level of desire to be a housewife was not right, specially in one of the most gender aware places in the world.
