“Who carries a heavier load? Women or men?”
The short movie produced for the “Itsumo-Arigato-Project (Thank-You-Always Project),” by Kao Corporation in Japan, begins with this simple question. Many might assume that it’s the stronger of the two sexes, usually the men. Yes, perhaps on a family outing, it’s more likely that dad carries the larger load, the larger grocery bag, or a child in his arms. But what about on a normal day, like a Monday or a Tuesday?
To highlight the fact that women generally bear larger loads, the short film captures the day of a young mother living in Tokyo with her husband and baby son. Her husband secretly watches her from inside a van, but he becomes speechless when he finds out what really goes on when he is at work.
Do you know how your partner spends their day? This husband seemed surprised to see his wife doing so much from early morning until late at night.
What a sobering reminder! We often take for granted all the things that our loved ones do. Try to encourage your loved ones with a simple “thank you” and “I love you” today.
