Not Enough Time: Insight Into Myanmar Women’s Urban Experiences


By Caitlin Williscroft

In 2018 The Asia Foundation, in partnership with the Yangon School of Political Science, rolled out the City Life Survey (CLS) following a successful pilot in 2017. The Asia Foundation invited research experts to take a deeper dive into the 2018 CLS, to contextualize and triangulate its findings against other sources of evidence. Not Enough Time: Insight into Myanmar Women’s Urban Experiences explores prevailing social norms and presents the first robust data in Myanmar on the widely experienced phenomenon of the ‘triple burden’ and considers the implications for women’s opportunities in cities.
