Grooming and Productivity

Grooming and Productivity.

Australian news reporter Tracey Spicer gave this awesome TedEx talk about grooming and productivity.

She presents startling findings that women on average spend 27 minutes a day on personal grooming. This amounts to approximately 3276 hours in her lifetime compared to only 1092 hours for men.

3275 hours could equate to completing a pre MBA course at Oxford Business School, becoming proficient at a musical instrument or learning another language.

In addition to this decreased productivity in the time we actually have, doubling grooming time equals to a decrease of 3.4% in income for women.

The way society wants women to be perceived is at the expense of our bag of skills and ultimately hurts ourselves. 

-S.
