The latest from #irpfellow@kristieaton women in India do almost 10 times the amount of unpaid work as men, according to a 2015 report from consulting firm McKinsey&Company examining women's equality in the country. Most of the unpaid labor is routine housework exacerbated by a lack of clean water and sanitation. Jharkhand State — where cooperatives focusing on growing and utilizing the local mahua flower to to make jams, jellies and sweet snacks — has been identified in the report as one of the worst states in India for gender parity, on par with war-torn Yemen and Chad.

In such a super good mood! Went for my first run of the British summer which has made me buzzinnngg for warm weather plus I got praised for my writing by a top biologist/author - always lovey when your work is recognised! I'd post a picture of my smiling face but my simple pasta salad will do (it's Explore Pasta red lentil penne- gluten free and DOESN'T taste of cardboard).
