Gaza: Urban Women Agripreneurship in the Gaza Strip, Facts & Challenges

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

The aim of this fact sheet is to highlight the realities and challenges of urban women’s entrepreneurial work in the agriculture sector

February 2021


Restricted employment prospects and women’s childrearing roles often affect women’s access to productive and financial services. As a result, the participation of women in the labor force is 20%, compared with 70% of men. The gender gap in unemployment rate continues to grow: in 2018, the unemployment rate for men was 26.4% compared to 53.7% for women.

The average daily wage of Palestinian women is 95 shekels, constituting about 70% of the average daily wage of men (135.5 shekels). Business ownership is also closely linked to gender, with just 3.5% of women in the 15-64 age group setting up their own companies, compared with 16% of men in Palestine who are of working age. In Palestine, there are around 7,000 officially licensed businesses that are owned by women.

In Gaza, official jobs among women is 7.9% lower than in the West Bank, where 25.3% of women are self-employed, working for others, farmers, or workers.

One of the priorities of the National Cross-Sectorial Strategy for the Promotion of Gender Equality (2017-2022) is progress towards women’s equal access to economic resources, including land and productive resources, inheritance, financial services and funding based on national laws.
