Working conditions of women in factories in Jordan

27.03.2019 / Created by (EMWF)

This article looks at the working conditions of Jordanian women in the factories, taking Zarqa region where training and professional development opportunities are limited as a case study. These conditions reduce women’s chances to be promoted or to have access to decision making positions within factories.

The article is based on a field diagnosis in Zarqa region in the north-east of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan. This diagnosis was conducted by the Jordanien Forum for Business and Professional Women- Forum (JFBPW) in collaboration with the Euro-Mediterranean Women’s Foundation (FFEM) and the European Institute of Mediterranean (IEMed).
