The pride of working women



“I am proud of my work, but the men say that we have taken their jobs. Our society is unyielding.”

This statement by a 42 year old Algerian woman from Tissemsilt shows that the employment of women is still a matter for debate in Algeria – as in numerous other countries.


Despite the considerable advances seen in the Algerian political sphere, where women constitute over 31 per cent of the deputies to the National Assembly (*), their economic participation remains very low.


In 2011, with a proportion of less than 17 per cent of women in the workforce, Algeria – alongside Iraq and Syria - was among the countries with the lowest level of female economic participation in 

the world – according to an ILO study pending publication (**). Women are, nevertheless, gradually beginning to enter the workforce. According to the National Statistical Office of Algeria, by 2013 the female labour force participation rate had risen to 19 per cent.
