Although women have been gaining an increasing share of many kinds of jobs,
they have also experienced a decline in the social power of labor and growing
unemployment (Sassen, 1998). Women鈥檚 participation in the labor-market has not been
necessarily translated into a redistribution of domestic, household, and childcare
responsibilities. In general, women are still disadvantaged in the new labor markets, in
terms of wages, training, and occupational segregation (Sassen, 1998). Regarding the
later, women are disproportionately involved in forms of employment increasingly used
to maximize profits such as temporary, part-time, casual, and home-based work. in this
sense, women are the top of the iceberg of a well established global trend.
Structural adjustments hurt more women than men because they assume and
are expected to assume extra productive and reproductive activities in order to survive
the austerities of adjustment and stabilization policies, including higher prices, and to
compensate for the withdrawal or reduction of government subsidies in food and
services. Keeping the cost of labor low has encouraged the growth of demand for female
labor, while declining household budgets has led to an increase in the supply of job-
seeking women.
