Causes and Effects of Women Unemployment in Hadhramout : A Case Study of Al-Mukala City.

Auther : Dr. Fathia M. Bahashwan

     This study aims to identify the reality of women's unemployment in Hadhramout, which is considered one of the most serious problems caused by the interaction of several factors. Beside its being a social and economic problem, it leads to the unemployment of women which affects them both at the individual and family levels. A questionnaire was used to collect data from a random sample of 120 married and unmarried female university graduates who suffered from unemployment. This has caused some of them to seek  private sector jobs at a very low salary.
     Several findings emerged from this study. First, the group aged (26-30) suffered the most from unemployment. Second, women had little share in government employment. Third, the government showed no commitment to appointing female graduates, taking into consideration the limited number of government jobs in Hudhramout compared with the large number of applicants. Fourth, nepotism in offering jobs affects women unemployment. Fifth, negative social and cultural values in the society prevents women from accessing many professions in spite of appropriate qualifications. Finally, the early marriage age of girls and the ensuing lack of qualifications was more factor in women unemployment.
