Increasing number of women carries out unpaid household, care work Featured

An increasing number of women in developing countries carries out unpaid household and care work than men, UN Women says in its latest report.

They engage in such activities for four hours and 11 minutes, says the report.

That compares higher with the one hour and 31 minutes spent by men.

In developed countries, the figures are three hours and 30 minutes for women and one hour and 54 minutes for men, says the report.

Globally, women do more than twice as much household & care work than men, it stresses.
