Financial Literacy and Intra-household Decision Making: Evidence from Rwanda

Research has consistently shown that women’s involvement in household decision making positively affects household outcomes such as nutrition and education of children.

Patrilocal Residence and Female Labor Supply: Evidence From Kyrgyzstan

Many people live in patrilocal societies, which prescribe that women move in with their husbands’ parents, relieve their in-laws from housework, and care for them in old age.

We account for the endogeneity of coresidence ...
