Caring for people and domestic work, such as cooking, cleaning and fetching water, is essential for personal wellbeing and survival. But across the world, care work is overwhelmingly done by women, which restricts their opportunities for education, employment, political engagement and leisure.
This research case study discusses the successes and challenges of the time use measurements used in Oxfam’s Household Care Surveys. The surveys, supported by Oxfam’s Women’s Economic Empowerment and Care (WE-Care) programme, aimed to measure adults’ and children’s time spent on unpaid care work and other factors that could influence this distribution within the household.
