Women work more than men, study says
MetadataShow full item record
Contrary to what is popularly known, women in fishing communities work more than men. A study done by researchers of the Tigbauan, Iloilo-based Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center Aquaculture Department (SEAFDEC AQD) has debunked the popular notion that men are the principal providers while women are mere "assistants" confined to the home and performing routine household chores. The case study, entitled "Women and the Question of Sustainable Development in a Philippine Fishing Village," was conducted by SEAFDEC AQD scientists Susana V. Siar and Lynn Cañeba.
