Report 9 in our series of Gender-Based Violence and Misogyny social media analytics reporting unpacks inequality in the labour force. Conversation around women in the labour force is polarised and views align broadly within two camps, a religious-moral traditionalism juxtaposed with a perspective rooted in progressivism and gender equality. We explored three focus areas namely; (1) Labour Force Equality, (2) Defining Work and (3) Regulatory Frameworks, Sex Markers and Gender Pay Gaps. This analysis provides insight into perceptions of labour force inequality and related themes within the South African context.
