Female labour force participation: A summary of IGC research

IGC research explores the factors that constrain female labour force participation and how to tackle them in different spaces. In particular, IGC research has focused on barriers that affect the human capital of women and girls, physical and economic freedom (namely transport and financial constraints) of women, as well as the lack of enabling conditions in the workplace. The research also explores how institutionalised norms intersect across these different areas to affect women’s productive employment.
