Behavioral Insights For Women’s Sector Choice in Liberia’s Youth Opportunities Project (Inglês)

Throughout sub-Saharan Africa, employment prospects are worse for women than they are for men. Unemployment faced by women is consistently higher than that faced by men, and women’s earnings are systematically less than men’s in many countries. One reason employment prospects for women are worse than for men is that women often do not take up opportunities in fields that are traditionally male-dominated. Despite the fact that studies have shown that working in traditionally male dominated sectors can lead to better employment outcomes for women, such as higher earnings, the low number of women in such sectors in sub-Saharan Africa suggests that many women face barriers to entering such fields. This is no different for women in Liberia’s Youth Opportunities Project (YOP).
