9780821380666: Gender Disparities in Africa's Labor Market (Africa Development Forum)

Women's earnings are a fraction of male's earnings in several African countries. It is tempting to conclude that this wage gap is a sign of discrimination against women in the labor market. Yet this book uses new datasets to show that the gap is not simply the result of discrimination in the labor markets, but rather the result of multiple factors, including access to education and credit, cultural values and household duties, and, above all, labor market conditions. It shows that gender disparities grow when economies are not functioning well and labor markets are tiny. More than the effect of discrimination, it seems that job rationing causes those with better human capital and those with more power in the household―usually the men―to take the few jobs that are available. It is hardly surprising, then, that in a region where only a fraction of the labor force finds jobs in the formal sector, gender disparities in earnings are so high. The book further documents that firm-level and sector characteristics are additional powerful factors in explaining the gender disparities in the labor market.

As the causes are not simple, neither are the solutions; multifaceted strategies are needed. By providing environments that support economic growth and, more importantly, job creation, as well as by promoting equal access for women to education and rethinking the attitudes that limit what women may achieve, governments in the region will substantially improve the well-being of all their peoples.

'Gender Disparities in Africa's Labor Market' helps to fill the knowledge gap and identify the links between gender disparities and poverty reduction. The work was implemented in collaboration with a range of poverty and labor market studies to maximize its usefulness for policy dialogue in specific countries.

This book will be of interest to policy makers, students, academics, gender experts, and all those interested in gender issues and development.

Descripción World Bank Publications, United States, 2010. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. Language: English . This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. Gender inequality in the labor market remains a pressing problem of contemporary Africa. Notwithstanding the existence of large variations across countries with regard to male and female labor market outcomes, available evidence shows that in several countries of the region women are less likely to be in paid work, they are disproportionately concentrated in informal and precarious employment, and they are paid substantially less. Assessing and comparing the extent and the nature of women disadvantages in Africa s labor markets remains a challenge, however. In-depth comparative analyses are lacking, largely because reliable and comparable comprehensive data have been for a long time hardly available. The objective of this study, a collaboration between the World Bank and the Agence francaise de developpement (AFD), is to contribute to fill-in an important knowledge gap regarding the extent and the nature of gender disparities in Africa s labor markets. The study is novel in providing a comparative analysis based on standardized nationally representative survey-data for several Sub-Saharan Africa countries and one North Africa country.It also offers a more in-depth gender analysis by using a comprehensive set of labor market indicators disaggregated by location, age groups and consumption quintiles, and several sophisticated micro and macro techniques.
