Many societies still do not accept, or realize, that there is a change in the “traditional” roles.

Women are more likely to work in more precarious forms of employment with low earnings, little financial security and few or no social benefits.

Women not only earn less than men but also tend to own fewer assets.

Gender biases in property and inheritance laws and in other channels of acquiring assets also leave women and children at greater risk of poverty.
