Grants to this Grantee
for the Levy Economics Institute's Gender Equality and the Economy program  
This project expands research by the Levy Economics Institute at Bard College’s Gender Equality and the Economy program on the patterns, determinants, and implications of gender disparities in time deficits and unpaid work. Using an innovative measure of time and income poverty, the study aims to better understand the unequal division of household production responsibilities and the higher incidence of time deficits among women in South Africa and Ethiopia. The Levy Economics Institute will also organize a gender and macroeconomics workshop to advance approaches that integrate gender and unpaid work into macroeconomic analysis to inform the development of gender-equitable economic policies in low- and middle-income countries.
for the Levy Economics Institute's Gender Equality and the Economy program  
This grant will support the Levy Economics Institute at Bard College to develop a framework to assess the macro and microeconomic effects of public policies aimed at reducing unpaid work burdens in Ghana and Tanzania. This work builds on previous research to revise poverty rate estimates in these countries by taking into account the time deficits of men and women, largely due to unpaid work responsibilities. The findings will be disseminated broadly to government agencies in Ghana and Tanzania, international development agencies, civil society organizations, and the academic community in order to inform policy debates and decisions.
