This study is a part of the research project – 'The dynamics of women's work: routes to economic and social empowerment'.
The study aims to contribute to the research project by looking at how gender inequality at an early stage may induce inequality in later life. It will specifically look at how living in localities with higher crimes may hurt adolescent girls more than boys by accelerating their school to marriage transition. Consequently, girls will lag behind in terms of human capital formation and be less competitive in the labour market.
