This report was basically to analyze how different family modules are having an impact on women and their choices. In this study, it was revealed that 46.7% families are couples living with their children, 31% have been living in an extended family and about 12.5% families have been run by a single parent.

At over 13 million households run by a single woman, this report aims that for the achievement of sustainable development goals (SDGs), there should not be a sort of inequality and discrimination against women in developed and developing countries.

It was indicated that motherhood and marriage has a major impact on women's participation at work.

An Indian data of 2012 reported that 29.1% of all women aged 25-54 years are in the labour force, compared to 97.8% for men of the same age.

Overall the report suggested that globally eight out of ten lone parents households are run by women itself i.e. (84.3%). And the data that was procured from 89 countries constituted that 101.3 million households are run by single mothers all over the world. A lot of other single mothers are living with an extended family.

Guess it is not a man's world after all.
