A Khazanah Research Institute survey has revealed that women in Kuala Lumpur spend 1.4 hours more unpaid homemaking each day than men and with around 2.4 million housewives in the country not in any formal employment, they aren't covered by any form of social protection. Anis Farid, Research Project Manager, Women's Aid Organisation, tells us unpaid care work transcends gender and is also under-reported, suggesting that social protection efforts need to be more wide ranging.
