Tags: Family Feud

Channel Ten's game show Family Feud is copping heat after a question that was asked to contestants on last nights show.

A social media storm branding the "survey question" sexist followed after being asked to "name something people think is a woman's job".


WATCH THE VIDEO BELOW.

It didn't make things any better with the top response "cooking" being revealed on the board.

Is Australia really that backwards?

The top responses were cooking (28%), cleaning (17%), nursing (13%), hairdressing (7%), domestic duties (5%), dishes (4%), receptionist (4%) and washing clothes (3%).

100 people are surveyed and their answers to questions recorded.  Contestants then have to guess the top responses on the board.

The show also asked to "name a man's job" with the top responses being building (18%), mowing the lawn (17%), bins (10%), mechanic (8%), tradie (7%), fixing things (5%), carpentry (5%) and plumbing (4%).

Do you think it was sexist, or innocent enough?  Let us know on our Facebook page.
