Patriarchy and economic development : women's positions at the end of the twentieth century ( Book )
1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 3 libraries worldwide
The chapters in this book were written for a UNU/WIDER research conference convened to explore two parallel phenomena: the changing position of women and gender relations and the relevance of the concept of patriarchy, and the impact of development - and especially industrialization and wage work - on women and gender. They address these questions through theoretical, historical, and empirical approaches, and provide critical analysis and macro- and micro-level data for East Asia, the Middle East and North Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean, sub-Saharan Africa, the Indian subcontinent, the Nordic region, and Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union. The contributors are well-known academics and researchers who utilize the methods of economics, sociology, history, and feminist analysis in their case studies of economic development and women's positions

Health and labour market participation in Uganda by Sarah Bridges( Book )
1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
The paucity of non-agricultural paid employment, and under utilization of female labour in Uganda, and other sub-Saharan African countries, is often seen to be the next major obstacle to further poverty reduction and development in the region. Despite this there have been few empirical investigations that examine the key determinants of labour market participation for the region. By using nationally representative household data from Uganda this paper identifies some of the key supply side determinants of participation. Here we instrument for self-reported health and find that conditional on participation ill health lowers the likelihood of being in the formal labour market. In addition and perhaps more worryingly, these negative effects are stronger for women than men. -- labour market participation ; health ; fertility ; gender ; Uganda
