Transformation of women at work in Asia: An unfinished development agenda

This book examines the drivers of, and barriers to, participation of women in the Asian labour market for its socio-economic development and structural transformation.

Based on original comparative research and extensive fieldwork, it highlights challenges
that women across Asia face in gaining access to more and better jobs. Findings show that women across the continent have contributed significantly to its spectacular growth story.

Nonetheless, social norms and economic factors limit their levels of participation. This publication provides policy options for governments to promote decent work opportunities for women across social strata.
