Unpaid care work

Care is a critical, yet often unrecognised and invisibilised aspect of women’s lives. In this work, we aim to increase the visibility of care, through engagement in policy spaces at international and national levels in four countries – Nepal, Nigeria, Uganda and Kenya. We take a political economy approach to exploring where, when, why and how unpaid care concerns have become more visible in national and international policy agendas.

Our goal is to ensure that public policies recognise and redistribute care, and work towards reducing the drudgery involved in care work especially for women living in poverty.
