Age and Gender Bias in Workloads During the Lifecycle: Evidence from Rural Ghana
This One Pager discusses how age and gender affect workloads during the lifecycle of women and men in rural Ghana.

The workload is disproportionately carried by women, while children enter the labour force prematurely and the elderly work beyond retirement.
