Women's Time Use in Rural Tajikistan

Gender equality is guaranteed in the legal and policy framework in Tajikistan, but its implementation faces challenges, especially in rural areas. Through time use surveys, this report breaks down the ways in which women contribute to the rural economy through their paid and unpaid work. It analyzes the impact of gendered roles in care and domestic work, as well as in work outside the household. The report calls for increased public investment to address welfare needs as well as to relax constraints on women's time and improve their access to the labor market.
