Evaluating effectiveness of public and private policies on reduction of gender disparities in unpaid labor under varied economic, political, and social circumstances

Started June 28, 2021

Abstract or project description

First I will discuss the relevance of evaluating public and private policies on reducing gender disparities in unpaid labor. I will discuss statistics that demonstrate the extent of this phenomenon, and the subsequent effects of these disparities that result in unequal outcomes for the genders. I will then describe different economic, political, and social circumstances of a region, and the public and private policies that have been tried in the past. Next, I will evaluate the effectiveness of these policies on reducing the gender gap in unpaid labor, and which types of policies are most effective for different circumstances.
