Gender Equality and Time Poverty

This research area concentrates on the gender dimensions of macroeconomic issues and international economic policy. It extends the standard approach to what an economy is and how it functions to encompass unpaid work (subsistence activities, caring for household members, community volunteer work) as an integral and key component of any economy.
While the elimination of gender inequalities has become a focus of policy discussions in recent years, the vast majority of women around the world still do not enjoy equality in economic participation, physical security, access to land, and financial resources or earnings. Closing gender gaps requires policy interventions that enhance women's economic opportunities and outcomes.

The Levy Institute’s Gender Equality and the Economy research program focuses on the ways in which economic processes and policies affect gender equality, and examines the influence of gender inequalities on economic outcomes. Its goal is to stimulate reexamination of key economic concepts, models, and indicators—with a particular view to reformulating policy in order to contribute knowledge and recommend policies that promote gender equality.
