‘Count women household activities in GDP’
Several rights groups on Thursday came up with a fresh demand to count women’s household contribution to Gross Domestic Product (GDP). The demand was raised at a human chain organised in front of the National Press Club, reports BSS. According to a press release, a network of 22 organisations observed that the household-related women activities have measurable contributions to the economic growth, but those are yet to be recognised formally. Ferdous Ara Rumee of COAST Trust said the economy does not calculate the monetary value of household activities of women though they make up half the population.
