GIRLS CHALLENGING THE GENDER RULES
In 2019, we draw from in-depth analysis of 37 girls going through early adolescence in the three Sub-Saharan African Cohort countries: Benin, Togo and Uganda.
Our analysis shows that all the Cohort girls are noticing, questioning or rejecting expectations around their behaviour and roles in at least one area of their lives, from views about household work to what is considered acceptable female behaviour and future aspirations.
This year our longitudinal research study has focused on the impact of unpaid domestic care on our girls’ lives.
