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.

The Pirates of the Caribbean was the last ride Walt Disney personally supervised; it has undergone many replications and revisions over the years, but last year Disneyland Paris removed the "Buy a Bride" scene, in which we are treated to a lighthearted human trafficking auction in which captured women are auctioned to pirates as "brides."
