Their complaining is a charade! These "modern" women haven't (probably) enough time for Facebook or meeting with other women while men are working.
As a freelancer I am sometimes doing the supermarket shopping at 12 o'clock very speedy. Then I can witness many many "super hard working" housewives. In a slowly manner they are watching this and inspecting that product. Or sitting with other women now to chat and eat ice cream or they are constantly using their stupid phones (to 'play' Facebook).
Later a newspaper article will describe the modern housewife with a workload of 12 hours a day ...and demands appreciation. Let us award women with the purple heart. Hahahaha
I remember an episode of Al Bundy. A newspaper demanded 70.000$ (?) for housewives. Then Al Bundy returned from work and Peggy slept on the couch with a remote control in her hand.
By the way: A neighbour died with a remote control in her hand, while her husband was at work. She always looked like one of Al Bundy's female customers. She was even too lazy to take her dog for a 15 minute walk...
