Ethiopian Women Misrepresented in Manufacturing - Study

A recent study commissioned by the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) reveals that Ethiopian women have continued to be misrepresented in the manufacturing sector in Ethiopia.

The study entitled 'Women in the Manufacturing Sector' and covers seven priority manufacturing sub-sectors, stated that the participation of women in the labour market has grown and reached 77.8pc by 2015.

However, 36pc of them are working in the informal sector. The overall participation of women in the large and medium manufacturing sectors is still low standing at 33.3pc. Only 15pc of the labour force is in the finishing stage.

From the overall estimate, the study shows that the average ownership of women in large and medium-size manufacturing firms is about 16pc.
