Billionaire businessman Anand Mahindra recently had to babysit his one-year-old grandkid. In just a week, this experience made him recognize that women require much more effort to succeed than men. So much so, that he even shared this realization with his 8 million Twitter followers. Mahindra even added an eye-opening cartoon to his tweet to further illustrate his point.

The image shows three businessmen and three businesswomen lined up for a race on a track. The men have no hurdles in front of them, but the women have laundry, cooking and household chores in front of their paths. Mahindra said he “salute(s) every working woman & acknowledge(s) that their successes have required a much greater amount of effort than their male counterparts.” However, some men were offended by his tweet.

The thought-provoking image was drawn by Peruvian political cartoonist, Carlin, who draws a regular panel for Peru publication, La Republica.

Plenty of evidence supports it, too. A recent study, for example, shows that fathers experience more happiness from parenthood than mothers. And that’s mainly because they have more time and space to continue other activities in the world around them and have fewer responsibilities at home. Researchers looked at measures of well-being that included happiness, well-being, depressive symptoms, psychological satisfaction, and stress, and concluded that gender significantly impacted the association between childcare and happiness — men were happier while caring for their children, while women were less happy.

Some men were offended by this tweet, so they created their own versions of it

Another fresh study found that although most women work outside the home and most men now at least pitch in on chores, the majority of women still handle the bulk of a home’s “invisible labor” – tasks like making sure the kids get new sneakers or lining up a babysitter for an evening out. It also added that women who were burdened with these tasks reported feeling overwhelmed and empty.

The reactions to the cartoon are mostly a mix of women showing their appreciation for their household tasks and emotional labor and mental load being acknowledged, and men who were like, “Hey, I did the dishes last week, what gives?”

Which sparked a heated debate on whether or not women and men have the same opportunities
