The Linkage Between Women's Emloyment, Family Welfare And Child Labour in Nepal
PDF File Size: 445 KB | Download   
Current policies and programmes tend to address separately the problems of women’s employment and those of child labour. On the one hand, efforts to promote women’s employment often do not go on to address related factors, such as how empowerment can lead to more equal gender relations within the family, improved family welfare and, in particular, children’s education and their protection from labour exploitation. On the other hand, whilst long term measures to reduce child labour focus on the reduction of poverty through the promotion of adult employment, there is still limited knowledge of the most effective means to sustain family livelihoods once child labour is removed as a source of income. The current study was carried out to contribute, and build on existing knowledge of the linkages between women’s employment, family welfare and child labour in Nepal. Specifically, the study looked at the socio-economic background of 1,463 women workers and their husbands; their work environment and working conditions; their level of empowerment; the household division of labour, and the work status of their children.
