Women and girls spend 12.5 billion hours on care work around the world. And they do it for free. See and hear women from all walks of life from the MENA region recounting how unequal distribution of care work has led to loss of opportunities for them and the society as a whole. Unpaid Care and Domestic Work (UCDW) is essential to families and communities and drives our economies. Women spend up to 10 hours a day on care work. When care work falls on women, they lose opportunities to build a better, secure, future.
The YPE project has increased its efforts on UCDW and its consequences for women empowerment. Rapid Care Analysis has been conducted in all the countries the YPE is operating (Jordan, Egypt, Tunisia and Morocco). This film has been realised to amplify women voices recounting the lost opportunities due to care work, discover the story of Ibtihaj.
