Is Women’s Work a Pathway to their Agency in Rural Egypt?

Topic: J3. Wages, Compensation, and Labor Costs J1. Demographic Economics


Status:
completed Project


The aim of the project is to enhance the understanding of the economic preconditions for women’s agency in rural Minya, Egypt, by assessing the influence of women’s labor market participation and subsistence work on three areas: their influence on their family’s economic decisions, spatial mobility, and ability to voice their opinion favoring more equitable gender roles and rights. The study attempts to find out if women who engage in the labor market have a higher say in all of these domains than those who engage in subsistence work or those who do not work and are not economically active.
