Girls' Burden of Unpaid Care
This year, our Real Choices, Real Lives longitudinal research study has focused on the impact of unpaid domestic care on our girls’ lives. We have seen first-hand how gender roles and socio-economic status have reinforced a cycle of girls bearing the burden of unpaid care. Amongst our girls, education is suffering, gender-based violence is more prevalent, and self-worth and ambitions are waning as a result of the weight of their duty to be ‘good girls’ and support their families’ domestic responsibilities.
