  •  30 percent of women spend 10 to 20 hours a week with their kids; 24 percent spend less than 10 hours with their children; 1 percent have no time for their children at all
  •  13 percent of women have no time for their partners at all; and more than 50 percent of women spend less than 10 hours a week with their partners
  •  Things that women have the least time for are health and fitness (52 percent), leisure activities (38 percent) and friends and family (16 percent)
  •  43 percent of women spend between three and six hours per week on housework
  •  Women don’t have a lot of ‘me-time’ and although 26 percent of women would love to be pampered at a spa, 23 percent don’t take any me-time at all.
