Status of Women and Men Report: Productive Employment and Decent Work for All

This report explores women’s and men’s position in the labour force in six Caribbean Community (CARICOM) Member States (Barbados, Grenada, Guyana, Jamaica, St. Lucia and Trinidad and Tobago) and provides insight into progress made with regard to achieving gender equality in the world of work.

The findings of a policy and statistical analysis reveal that structural barriers remain to women experiencing equality in this sphere, despite notable progress in educational attainment. An analysis of available data and information confirms that women in CARICOM are not experiencing their right to decent work to the same extent as men.
