Abstract
  • Women spend substantially more time on unpaid care work than men; they spend a vital part of the day trying to meet the social expectations of their domestic and reproductive roles. The goal of this study is to examine Nigerian women’s experience of housework as a form of unpaid labor. Reproductive labor is a type of invisible work that increases the market value for other types of work, and because it is often expected that women will perform reproductive labor, it limits women's access to opportunities. This study was conducted against the backdrop of gender inequity that includes the unequal division and devaluing of reproductive labor in Nigeria. A survey was distributed to various online and social media networks, asking Nigerian women and men to describe their experiences and feelings associated with reproductive labor. The key findings of this research revealed that women spend more hours performing housework than men, and men earn more income than women even when both sex have had higher degrees.
