Additional Information: This paper examines the multiple roles which women perform in their daily lives and considers how their heavy workloads impact on their own health and that of their children. It draws on the findings of a study carried out in Kenya and Tanzania to identify attitudinal and structural barriers to the reduction of women's workloads. It briefly contrasts this with the situation of women in the U.K. The study also demonstrates that an approach known as participatory learning and action (PLA) can be effective not only in raising awareness of women's workloads but also in influencing positive change in attitudes and behaviours, so that men and boys take on a greater share of the household tasks.
