Female Labour Supply in Sudan


  • Maglad, N.A.


Female participation in the market activities has been increasing in the last decades in Sudan, particularly in the organized modern sector, as women's educational attainment has been rising. The trend, undoubtedly, has vital repercussions on social and economic change and deserves to be studied. This paper looks at the determinants of women's decisions to enter the labour market and their market labour hours.
