FEMALE UNEMPLOYMENT RATE

Women are more likely than men to be unemployed or to be contributing family workers, which usually implies that they have no access to monetary income. Women are also more likely than men to be employed part-time.

However, while this can help them to better balance work, household and childrearing responsibilities, part-time jobs are often associated with lower hourly wages, less job security and less training and promotion opportunities than full-time employment.
