A thought that has been supported by many women throughout India and the world, including, recently, Sheryl Sandberg, Facebook's Chief Operating Officer and founder of Leanin.org.

"
Bringing out the reality of inequality within families since 2015 with #ShareTheLoad, Ariel continues to raise pertinent questions that make people reflect, introspect and act. In 2015, Ariel raised a very pertinent question – "Is laundry just a woman's job?" To draw attention to the uneven distribution of
domestic chores. With the movement "Dad #ShareTheLoad" of 2016, the conversation was aimed at discovering the reason for the disparity, which is the cycle of prejudices handed down from generation to generation. And over the years, this has had a significant impact with more men today who share the load than ever before. Although there was a change in the stereotype, 52% of men still think that household chores are a woman / daughter's job and that "outside" work is a man / child job ( this is a significant decrease from 79% in 2015).
This year the social conversation about family inequality was taken to the next level by Ariel India and raised an important question: why are the children reared differently from their daughters? Encourage mothers to be the changemakers of society and then reread the way they raise their children; the film explores the reasons for this disparity and offers a solution for achieving change.
Recently, daughters are raised to be strong, independent and confident to excel in all fields. But they continue to be the main custodians of families once married. This poses unbalanced expectations and burdens on them, which may hamper their professional growth. While society is changing, there is not always enough attention given to raising children differently. In fact, independent research done in 2018 shows that 70% of women reconsider further responsibilities at work to balance responsibilities at home. So, Ariel is showing the way to break these barriers, urging this generation of mothers, to raise the next generation as equals. Ariel is committed to reaching happier families, where both men and women share the load.
