Women work longer than men
MetadataShow full item record
A case study on women's roles in a fishing community has found that women work more than men do. This finding is contrary to the common belief that men are the principal providers while women are mere assistants confined to the house and performing routine household chores. The case study, entitled "Women and the Question of Sustainable Development in a Philippine Fishing Village" was conducted among 12 households in Binaobawan, a fishing village in Pilar, Capiz by Susana Siar and Lynn Cañeba, researchers of the Iloilo-based Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center's (Seafdec) aquaculture department.
