Today: Tuesday, March 24, 2015 – This week’s podcast covers an event at The New School which gave a one-day workshop on gendered labor market segregation in developing countries. This is part of a joint research project between the New School for Social Research and the University of Gottingen.
Today, Stephen Klasen, former Heuss visiting professor and development economics professor at The New School, explains his research on the stagnating women in the labor force. He looks at a detailed case study of India’s female participation in the workforce. After the 80s/90s surge of women in the workforce, women have stagnated and even declined in some cases in their participation in the workforce compared to men. Turns out that barriers are more to do with the industrial adaptation to more educated women than the lack of educated women available to work.
