Across Asia and the Pacific, women still cannot fully exercise their rights to decent work and full and productive employment. Women’s overall labour force participation in the region is just 48 per cent. Between 1990 and 2016, the female-to-male ratio in labour force participation rates declined from 0.67 to 0.61 in Asia-Pacific. In South-East Asia, the gender gap in labour force participation is 23 percentage points.
