This research analysis studies and outlines the statistical data regarding the female labor force the female labor trends in three countries, Egypt, Jordan & Brazil. The three countries chosen provide a diverse comparative analysis with Egypt being the lowest developed country and Brazil being the highest developed country; this assists in the decision making or policy making procedure in reaching a macro economic framework with the least amount of errors and inaccurate forecasts. The paper then analyzes and compares these labor trends whilst investigating the severity of wage segregation and wage discrimination in the countries thus the effects it has on the gender gap in the labor force; this is how we reach an efficient regulatory policy framework. Nevertheless, the aim of this research is to provide policies and reforms effective immediately for a future that will enhance female labor participation rates. Statistically, we want to increase the female labor force participation rates (FLFPR) especially in the MENA region countries. Conceptually, we want to reach solutions for the female labor force in each of the stated countries as to implement and adopt policies in which foster women participation and decrease wage segregation.
