The Effect of Society’s Values on the Education and Employment of Women

Auther : Hamdy Abdel-Aziz Abdel-Latif

This study examines the effect of the outlook of Egyptian society toward women’s education and the participation of women in different economic activities. There factors constitute this outlook: the religious aspect, which encourages women’s education but discourages women to work without need or necessity; the financial aspect, which supports women working if in need and, most importantly, the social aspect, which has inhibited women from participating in higher administrative positions.

The results show that most Egyptian girls prefer theoretical education, and though the illiteracy rate is declining rapidly, their participation in the work force remains low. Unmarried women are more likely to work than married women, and most women prefer work in the public services or work connected with social and personal activities. The study urges sociologists to find the means of positively affecting social and cultural values in order to encourage the education of women and their participation in the work force in Egypt and other Arab countries.
