dc.description<html> <head> <title></title> </head> <body> <p>Care work is the heartbeat of every society: it contributes to our wellbeing as a nation and is crucial for our social and economic development.</p> <p>Yet the disproportionate responsibility for unpaid care work results in time poverty and significant opportunity costs, particularly among the poorest and most marginalized women and girls.&#160;</p> <p>This policy brief outlines why unpaid care work is a critical development, economic and gender equality issue for Kenya. It draws on two sets of evidence from Oxfam&#8217;s Women&#8217;s Economic Empowerment and Care (WE-Care) programme, which explore the impact of women and girls&#8217; heavy and unequal unpaid care responsibilities both before and during COVID-19.</p> </body> </html>en_US
