There is a scientific controversy on the link between violence and men who do housework. There is research which underlines that men who tend to not exercise violence are more active in housework, and those who do less housework are more violent (Simister, 2013). Contrarily,there are analyses which state that hegemonic masculinity are not always violent and masculinities are diverse. Therefore it is not possible to generalize on terms of masculinities as sometimes mass media has promoted (Connell, 2012).
