Woman's Hour has invented a chore calculator for you to work out who does the majority of the chores in your home and who gets the most free time. Mumsnet join Jane to discuss why it matters to their users who does what at home. BBC reporter Geoff Bird and his wife Sarah provide a frank look at who does what in their home. Professor Jonathan Gershuny from the University of Oxford provides the historical context of the chore debate and journalist Tim Dowling and his wife Sophie de Brandt enter their details into the chore calculator to find out how equal the running of their house is. We are also at the Liberal Democrats conference in Glasgow.
