A team working with our video director genius friend Joe Sabia created this video for Glamour, that calculates the difference in total time that men and women spend, on average, on a variety of everyday activities.
They broke it all down activity by activity, even getting as detailed as comparing shampoo times (an average of 3 minutes per shampoo for a woman and 2 minutes for a man). While some time differences don’t seem substantial, like that shampoo stat, they actually add up quite a bit. For that shampoo example (based on an average of 183 shampoos per year), women spend almost three hours more per year – just on washing their hair. Other, more gender-neutral activities – like brushing your teeth and using mouthwash – are about equal.
But that's just the beginning. Women have to wait longer in restroom lines, Glamour found, and I can think of other day to day activities where there's a bit of a difference by gender.
Glamour's final tally: It takes a woman 24 days, 7 hours and 40 minutes to be a woman. Compare that with 9 days, 5 hours, and 27 minutes for a man.

Assembling a truly autonomous smart home is getting closer and closer to reality every day. But for every new smart bulb, thermostat, home security system and appliance we set loose within our walls, there are still probably a half dozen “dumb” items we’d still love to replace. But whether they’re too costly or too big […]
