Women have more limited opportunities than men in most economic and social activities. It has been asserted that aspects of women’s status or position in society are closely related to the demographic events of fertility, mortality and migration. For instance, evidence from a variety of studies demonstrates a positive relationship between women’s education and occupation on one hand, and child survival on the other. This phenomenon, therefore, leads to the conclusion that women’s limited opportunities in terms of education and occupation can result in lower child survival.
