The Gender Injustice of Unpaid Care in America

Women around the world spend more time than men doing unpaid care and domestic work: taking care of children, elders, and the ill. In the United States, women spend 37 percent more time on unpaid care than men. This unequal distribution of unpaid work—work that is essential to families and society—limits women’s career choices, income, and personal development. It also affects their overall health and well-being.
