The presentation will explore gender disparities in time use, wage and decision making and analyse the correlations of these disparities with livelihood strategies and socio-demographic factors within the household. The purpose is to understand the factors that influence the gender gap as well as testing if these disparities have replication effects within the household, thus widening or maintaining this gap.
