Women across the globe work an average of four years more than their male peers over the course of their lifetimes, according to a new report by the women and children's charity ActionAid. It's just like they always say: women be working!! Do they say that? They should.

But just because women work more doesn't mean we're up to our clavicles in extra cash and benefits. Because the wage gap is real (too real). Labor by women across the world adds up to an extra month for every year of work on average, but much of it is unpaid and includes childcare and domestic activities, like cleaning out that horrific gunk that clogs the kitchen and shower drains. So basically, hero's work.
