Gender and Time

The recently released World Development Report 2012 has been released. This year’s theme is about Gender Equality and Development. I really like the above infographic. Italian women seem to spend a great deal of time on housework, while Pakistani men spend hardly any time on market activities. It’s also quite surprising how consistent the trends are between the genders and across countries.
