The costs and burden of care unequally borne by women, girlsListen /
In many countries around the world, it's a woman's job to cook, clean and care for family members.
It's full time unpaid work that's not recognized by any state, therefore blocking opportunities for the advancement of women and girls and condemning them to poverty.
That's according to Magdalena Sepúlveda, the Special Rapporteur on extreme poverty.
She shared this message with UN Radio's Rocio Franco on Thursday, International Day for the Eradication of Poverty.
