Understanding norms around the gendered division of labour: Results from focus group discussions in Zimbabwe

This report summarises the main findings from qualitative research to identify the main social norms related to unpaid care and domestic work in rural communities in four districts in Zimbabwe. The research served to identify who the leaders are that communities look up to in order to validate social norms change. It helped to identify nascent opportunities for changes in the gendered division of labour, and what the implications are for planning and practice in addressing inequalities on unpaid care and domestic work.
