Our Survey Says: Sexist?


Australian TV station Network Ten has landed in hot water after a game show suggested that cleaning was a woman’s job.


Family Feud, a quiz show similar to Family Fortunes, was labelled as sexist by angry viewers after the episode aired on Wednesday 15th October.


During the show, two competing families had to guess the most obvious answers from a survey of 100 Australians who were asked to name a woman’s job.


The answers that scored the highest points were cleaning and cooking, while other answers given included nursing, hairdressing, washing clothes, ironing and vacuuming.

Following the show, many viewers took to social media to accuse the show of sexism, with some suggesting that


although the answers were not decided by the show, the question should not have been asked in the fi rst place.


After the uproar, the channel issued a statement, saying: “Network Ten apologises for including two questions relating to what people think is a man’s job and a woman’s job. The questions were ill advised and should not have been included in the show. The survey results are determined by 100 people and we understand they are not refl ective of all Australians.”


Earlier in the show, when contestants were asked to name a man’s job, the high scoring answers included building, plumbing, and carpentry.

Thomas Kempf, Chief Operating Officer, ISS Facility Services UK & Ireland concluded, “Winning these particular categories is very much aligned to our strategic goals. It’s an honour to have our peers provide recognition of the sectors in which we excel.”
