State Level Consultation on Women’s Unpaid work
Montfort Social Institute participated in the State Level Consultation on Women’s Unpaid work on 5th July at Sundarayya Vignyana Kendram, Hyderabad.
Unpaid work of women includes care work that is extended in the families. Women across the world spend two to ten times more time on unpaid work than men and this, in addition to their paid activities, creates a double burden. The distribution of unpaid work affects women’s income, savings and pensions and perpetuates their economic dis-empowerment, in the household.
