Abstract

The effects of trade liberalisation on female labour depend on a countrys socio-economic and employment sector characteristics. A Gender-aware computable general equilibrium model is applied to Ethiopia and South Africa from a comparative perspective. Tarif reduction results in opposite outcomes regarding gender-based wage and labour market participation inequalities in the two countries due to their structural differences in mens and womens employment.
