Causes and Effects for Feminization Segregation

23.12.2018 / Created by Salman

The purpose of this paper is to tackle the phenomena of feminization segregation in three Middle Eastern countries which are: Egypt, Jordan and Turkey. Also, the objective of this paper is to examine whether these three countries tried to solve feminization segregation by adopting different policies or not. Accordingly, this paper focused on examining specific indicators to study to what extent the problem still exists. These indicators included: Female Labor Force (%), the global gender gap index and the gender inequality index. This analysis proved that there were policies adopted in these three countries that succeeded in improving the amount of segregation. But, such measures were not enough to solve the whole problem. Finally, feminization segregation is a serious phenomenon that does not only need some policies to be adopted but also needs the mentalities of the people to change. Also, it needs the awareness of the people to increase to be aware of the serious consequences of feminization segregation.
