Transformation of Women at Work in Asia – Dr Sukti Dasgupta & Dr Sher Singh Verick. Published by SAGE.
Based on original comparative research and extensive fieldwork, Transformation of Women at Work in Asia (SAGE) highlights the commonalities as well as the diverse nature of challenges that women across Asia face in gaining access to more and better jobs. Findings show that women across the continent have contributed significantly to its spectacular growth story; yet, social norms and economic factors limit their levels of participation.
