Rural Girls’ Empowerment and Time Poverty

Date: 14th March 2018
Location: The Westin Grand Central Hotel
Time: 5:00–6:00 pm followed by a drinks reception

Plan International UK will present on latest findings from the ‘Real Choices, Real Lives’ longitudinal cohort research study which will highlight our evidence on the gendered impact of unpaid care work, and the effects of time-poverty on girls’ education.

This event will bring together a number of key expert organisations (Young Lives - Oxford University, Together for Girls, Population Council) to discuss and share research relating to the empowerment of rural girls, in particular the burden of unpaid labor and its impact on their lives.

Plan International UK will showcase longitudinal cohort data from our 2017 Annual Real Choices, Real Lives Report which highlights analysis of the eleventh year of the study with a particular focus on time-poverty.

This will be followed by other speakers outlining learning from programmes and research.
