Unpaid Care Work in Georgia
Women bear a disproportionate burden of unpaid care work, resulting in negative social and economic outcomes for women. Unpaid care work significantly contributes to a country’s economic and societal well-being. However, such work remains mostly invisible and unrecognized. This brief explores the gender gap in unpaid domestic and care work in Georgia, also in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.
This brief was developed by UN Women Georgia Country Office in the framework of the UN Women projects “Women’s Economic Empowerment in the South Caucasus” funded by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) and the Austrian Development Cooperation (ADC) and “Good Governance for Gender Equality in Georgia” supported by the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
