for the Levy Economics Institute's Gender Equality and the Economy program  
This grant will support the Levy Economics Institute’s Gender Equality and the Economy program to generate new knowledge on the determinants of women’s time and poverty in five African countries that can be used to inform gendered economic analysis and related policy goals. The project’s multicountry, multilevel research design is strengthened through new partnerships with in-country researchers to produce contextually relevant evidence for regional and national policymakers, activists, and scholars working to advance social and economic investments that allow for greater gender equality in paid and unpaid work.

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.
