Description

Challenging Limitations: The Redefinition of Roles for Women in the GCC, Alanoud Alsharekh, ed, deals with the rise of professional women in the Gulf region and their participation in the economic and social sector, a topic dealt with in the United Nations Arab Human Development Report, first launched in 2002.

In that report a particular statistic relevant to the role of women stands out. It is that the single factor with the highest correlation with per capita economic growth is that of female participation in the labour force. This correlation is one with profound significance for the Arab world, as it is the region that lags behind the rest in incorporating women into the labour force.
