This publication addresses a crucial aspect of women’s economic empowerment: labour market participation. Not all kinds of work entail positive outcomes for women, as they face challenges in pursuing well-paid, productive jobs that enable them to accumulate assets. Women’s time use will remain constrained if deeply rooted social norms, such as regarding housework and child-care responsibilities, are not shared by other household members.
