Women's Time Poverty
A woman’s work is never done, especially during the rainy season. “Who has the time? A qualitative assessment of gendered intrahousehold labor allocation, time use and time poverty in rural Senegal” takes a look at the factors impacting whether women have enough time to rest, engage in entrepreneurial activities and invest in the future. The paper, recently published in “Frontiers in Sustainable Food Systems,” was authored by Feed the Future Innovation Lab for Peanut gender specialist Jessica Marter-Kenyon, with contributing research and writing by S. Lucille Blakeley, Jacqueline Lea Banks, Codou Ndiaye and Maimouna Diop.
