Despite the progress made in women’s education in Jordan and the decrease of the gender gap in education, women´s labour force participation rate is still very low. Indeed, a big gender gap in labour force still persists and women´s skills and qualifications are not utilised to their full extent.This study discusses the obstacles and chances of women´s participation in labour force, the policies and measures adopted by the State and the stakeholders to enhance women´s opportunities in education, training and employment.The study concentrates on formal employment in private sector, namely tourism and information and communication technologies (ICT).
