Presentation of research activity or teaching

The main aim of the project is dual. First is to analyze the effect of feminization of occupations on gender-occupational segregation in the Mediterranean countries Egypt and Jordan. Second, is to identify the effect of feminization of occupations on the gender wage gap. In particular, the analysis will investigate the role of the feminization of occupations on boosting female labor force participation and on decreasing the gender wage gap and increasing the 'labor market effectiveness and inclusiveness'. Ultimately, the goal is to increase labor markets’ efficiency that promotes living standards and thus manages migration to the EU countries.

Populations targeted by research

I trained both gender in YAPD (youth association for population development- targeted groups are university level students) which is a nongovernmental organization that increase awareness of gender equality in Egypt. I provide training via several workshops to increase women participation in labor market, increase health awareness and develop youth skills. As well, I coordinate in a "children university"programme, we targeted to enhance children skills, as well I provide training for school students for the age 14 -16 years old. During sessions we promote gender equal rights and girls and to support their full participation in the political, social and economic development of their communities. Later I did research concerning poverty and increase women participation in the labor market.
