The current emphasis on trade liberalization and economic restructuring will affect many countries that have a large female workforce in labor-intensive industries. Given the limits imposed on productivity by low-skill, labor-intensive strategies, increasing competitiveness must come in large part from technological upgrading and increasing labor productivity. The challenge in Bangladesh and Morocco, as in many other countries, is to make the transition to higher wage, higher productivity employment without substituting male workers, and more socially privileged female workers, for the existing female workforce that is drawn from lower income households. The role of public policy is going to be critical in this context.--Publisher's description.
