Welcome to the world of gender equal house housework! Here you can get a comprehensive overview on Ariel’s award-winning campaign, which aims to question gender expectations in the household by raising important issues. Over the years, the #ShareTheLoad movement has had a massive effect on society’s view on traditional gender roles, but there’s still more work to be done if we want to achieve total equality within the household:
How Ariel shares the load in 2019
In Sons #ShareTheLoad, Ariel asks the most relevant question yet raised in the laundry room conversation: Are we teaching our sons what we are teaching our daughters? There’s a visible gender disparity between how we raise our daughters, and what we teach our sons, resulting in unbalanced expectations and burden on married women. It’s time to make a difference by teaching our sons that equality starts at home. We can become changemakers by teaching the next generation what it truly means to be equal simply by sharing the load.
The film was released on January 24th, 2019, and amassed 73 million views by May 2019.

Making a difference
Ariel has been unearthing the reality of inequality within households since 2015 with the award-winning #ShareTheLoad movement. The initiative was launched in India to address this issue, aspiring for a progressive future and happier households where men and women Share The Load equally. First, we disputed that laundry really is only a woman’s job.
Then, in 2016, we asked Dads to #ShareTheLoad, striving to break the cycle of prejudice that was passed down from one generation to the next.
