Description

Harnessing the Power of Data for Girls: Taking stock and looking ahead to 2030 includes the first global estimates on the time girls spend doing household chores such as cooking, cleaning, caring for family members and collecting water and firewood. Tasks such as gathering water or firewood can also put young girls at increased risk of sexual violence. In countries with available data on chores by type, the second most commonly performed task among girls this age is shopping for the household (50 per cent), followed by fetching water or firewood (46 per cent).
