Gender in Employment: Case Study of Botswana [online 6 October 2011]

[full-text, 28 pages]



Principal Findings and Conclusions.

Overall, men are significantly more likely than women to be in: (i) craft and related occupations; (ii) self-employment without

employees; (iii) self-employment with employees; (iv) legislature/managerial occupations; (v) professional occupations; (vi)

agricultural employment; and (vii) paid employment. Women’s employment disadvantage is greatest in the most secure

and prestigious occupational categories: legislature/managerial and professional occupations. These findings hold even

when other potentially influential variables such as age, educational attainment, marital status, and structural/ economic factors

are taken into account. On the other hand, men are less likely than women to be employed in: (i) clerical occupations; (ii)

unpaid family work; (iii) services; and (iv) plant and machine operations.
