Time Poverty: Why it Matters and What To Do About it
Globally, women and girls do the vast majority of caregiving and domestic work in the home. These heavy and disproportional responsibilities result in time poverty. We must act now to tackle the time poverty burden and transform our societies.
This International Women's Day Rachna Saxena looked at the opportunities in gender lens investing, we examined women's time poverty and what to do about it, and our staff around the world celebrated #IWD2018.
On International Women’s Day, we celebrate the achievements of the Women’s Investment Club Senegal over the past year, and look forward to expanding the initiative across Francophone West Africa. To date, 53 women have joined WIC Senegal, with a strong willingness to contribute to inclusive economic growth, and above all, to women’s empowerment.
