Oxfam proposes to address women’s "heavy and unequal" care work in six countries—Malawi, Ethiopia, Uganda, Zimbabwe, Colombia, and the Philippines—by implementing participatory research and change strategies. This is part of Oxfam’s efforts to change the terms of debate on economic development and women’s empowerment. The program will develop mixed method tools that are cost-effective and user-friendly to collect context-specific evidence about women’s care and economic activities, and explore pathways to change using Oxfam and partners’ ongoing initiatives and advocacy.

for gathering evidence for policy advocacy and monitoring
This grant will allow Oxfam to build on its Women’s Economic Empowerment Care work in three areas: (a) working in two countries to increase and improve public data collection on time use and unpaid work, with accompanying national and international advocacy campaigns; (b) working with women’s rights groups in four African countries to carry out capacity building for advocacy on care work and create a communications strategy; and (c) extending the research and analysis in new areas of unpaid care work, to develop key findings and improve methodologies.
