Temporal structures of gender inequality in East Asian and Western societies

GenTime focuses in the study of gender inequality in time use across East Asian and Western societies. We investigate the development trajectories and provision of unpaid work in different welfare regimes and the systematic differences between men and women in the amount of time they spend on daily activities and their daily life schedules. We examine if East Asian regimes represent a distinct typology among the welfare regimes. The project will shed new light on the gender division of labour and social inequality.


GenTime is funded by the European Research Council as part of the Horizon 2020 programme. The Principal Investigator is Professor Man-Yee Kan (award number 771736).
