There have been significant advances toward improving women’s well-being and social status in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) over the last few decades. However, women’s employment rate in the MENA region remains one of the lowest in the world. This study empirically examines the effects of firm-related and national factors on female employment in manufacturing firms located in the MENA region.
