What the debate on gender pay gap is really missing
Updated : April 27, 2018 12:09 PM IST
The value of a woman’s unpaid work in the house or even the family business often goes unaccounted in gender pay inequity debates.
On an average, Indian women put in almost 10 times more time on unpaid work than men, but even an Indian woman in the formal workforce is likely to earn 36% less than a similarly qualified man performing a similar role.
What does the woman who does this for her own household get for this? And, the larger question is how you unlock the value of this both for the woman at the household level, and for the nation at large.
