The rate of women´s participation in the Jordanian labour market is still one of the lowest in the world, according to the Global Gender Gap Report 2014.This study examines the reality of working women in Jordan in three fields namely: Secretarial, beauty salons and supportive health services.Women in these sectors form the majority of the labour force and they work in conditions that make their work fall under the category of forced labour. The aim of the study is to identify the social and economic framework for the women labour in Jordan, the working condition in those sectors and the international and Jordanian frameworks for forced labour.
