This book provides a detailed examination of patterns and determinants of female labor in three developing countries: Thailand, Colombia, and Egypt. The analysis is based on interviews with women about factors such as migration patterns, the employment situation, household conditions, and other relevant socioeconomic factors. The result is a comprehensive look at female economic behavior in developing countries, forming the basis for broader understanding of women's economic conditions across cultural boundaries.
