          Who is Benefiting from Trade Liberalization in Angola? A Gender Perspective (English)
          Case study by Zarrill, Simonetta/ UNCTAD, 2013, 83 pages
          Categories: Trade and Gender

          The study assesses the extent to which trade liberalization in Angola has had an impact on women and attempts to determine whether trade policies and patterns of structural transformation have reinforced gender inequality or created new opportunities for women. Based on a quantitative approach, the analysis explores first whether patterns of structural transformation have generated job opportunities; and secondly, if such opportunities have matched the skill profile of the female workforce, thereby leading to the feminization of the workforce in the country and affecting the working conditions of women workers.
