Women in India seem to work more than men in India, but it isn't exactly payed work. India ranks 127th on the gender inequality index and 108th on the global gender gap index according to The Asia Foundation . Women's literacy and education enrollment rates have increased over time, but labor force rates have decreased instead of increasing. According to The Asia Foundation many women are able to get an education, but the idea of women working is still culturally hard to accept. According to New York Times another reason many men refuse to allow their daughter, wives and daughters-in-law to leave the village for training, therefore many women who get educated are unable to join the labor force.  Many jobs are male dominated networks, and that is a barrier for women to be able to get a high paid job. Since these male dominated jobs are almost impossible for women they often end up in lower-paid and less-responsible positions than what their abilities would allow them. The Huffington Post found that many women in rural areas are burdened with responsibilities like taking care of the family, running of the home, therefore the only convenient job is farming related jobs.

For this report a Human Rights Watch researcher interviewed 44 women and men, including lawyers, small business owners, hiring managers, employees in public and private sectors, and economic experts who currently live in Iran or have recently left the country and have participated in or have studied Iran’s job market. A large number of interviewees were from the city of Tehran but a number of others lived and worked in cities such as Shiraz, Mashhad, Sanandaj, and Qazvin. Where available, Human Rights Watch incorporated government statistics and officials’ statements into this analysis. Human Rights Watch interviewed men and women from a range of socioeconomic backgrounds, but the majority of interviewees were university graduates and members of the highly skilled segment of Iran’s labor force. The Human Rights Watch researcher conducted all of the interviews in the Persian (Farsi) language over secure messaging smartphone applications. All participants were informed of the purpose of the interview and the ways in which the data would be used and were given assurances of anonymity. This report uses pseudonyms for all interviewees except one and withholds other identifying information to protect their privacy and their security. None of the interviewees received financial or other incentives for speaking with Human Rights Watch.
