The Double Burden: Impact of Economic Empowerment Initiatives on Women’s Workload

The research demonstrated that, in general, women’s increased involvement in community financial management and income generation has not necessarily led to a redistribution of caring work or other unpaid household and community responsibilities.

The findings also suggest that time-use, including
roles within savings clubs, was a source of conflict
within some households, particularly if it was seen as
impinging on women’s family responsibilities. This has
implications for women’s physical and mental wellbeing. Even in circumstances where men had reduced responsibility for earning income, there was little evidence of changes in their contribution to unpaid household and care work.
