So men shouldn't help in the kitchen?
Married men in the districts of Kampala and Kabale are highly perceived to be bewitched and are "compared to dogs" when they help their partners -- because dogs follow"owners wherever they go".
While men in Kaabong are believed to be "loroomot”, loosely translated ‘a man that counts pieces of meat'; therefore, greedy.
Karimojong men are "socially frowned upon and ridiculed" in the society when they help with care activities.
Women respondents were 1,077, men 823 and children 1,208.
2,028 people participated in the survey last year which points out that many families use culture to justify which gender is responsible for 'care work' activities like fetching water, cooking, washing and baby sitting.
The report outlines long-term recommendations to overcome cultural perception including socialization of boys and girls and bylaws on time.
The study was done by Economic Research Policy Centre (EPRC) and School of Women and Gender Studies Makerere University.
