Studying labour/time is an important research area, which allows us to make sense of the rhythms of everyday life of people in different contexts and societies. It is also a complex task that addresses the result of the research question, which inquires how and why people spend their time on social reproduction. Answering this question requires a systematic methodology involving both qualitative and quantitative research methods. In this Toolkit, we make the argument for bringing two important methodologies that study the everyday – Time-Use Surveys and Shadowing – to develop a Feminist Everyday Observatory Tool.
