In the brief Global Gender Gap in Unpaid Care: Why Domestic Work Still Remains a Woman’s Burden, the author reviews the literature on both the economic and sociological factors which perpetuate the pattern of gender disparity in unpaid domestic care work. The author also summarizes the “recognize, reduce and redistribute” policies which could be adopted to help address the problem.
The policy brief includes country reports on gender gap in unpaid domestic care in Armenia, Belarus, Georgia and Ukraine. It was published by The Forum for Research on Eastern Europe and Emerging Economies (FREE Network).
