This research publication presents the estimated economic contribution of women through their unpaid work by calculating an approximate figure of the economic value of daily work performed by women without pay, consisting of household tasks, farming, and care for family members. Women typically work 16 hours in a day, most of them have no leisure, and bear most responsibility for household work as well as engaging in some tasks related to income.
