Abstract:

'Although few GrOW studies focused on social and gender norms, they have generated a body of evidence about the ways in which discriminatory gender norms affect women's access to economic opportunities and their work experiences. These findings help explain stagnation in women's labour force participation in some contexts, the frequent concentration of women in relatively less lucrative sectors and occupations than men, and gendered barriers and challenges that disproportionately affect women'--Executive summary, page 1.
