Kuwaiti Women and Work: Old Boundaries and New Frontiers

Auther : Lubna Al-Kazi

The object of this study is to review the role of Kuwaiti women in the development process as an example of the Gulf Region. Using longitudinal data for three decades, the statistics show that Kuwaiti women have not only improved their educational qualifications but have also entered new fields of occupation. With labour force data derived from population censuses on variables such as age, education and occupation, it provides information not only on the entry of Kuwaiti women into the labour market, but also on their distribution within the various economic sectors. Some negative aspects of Kuwaiti female participation is also studied, such as their early retirement, as a source of brain drain of skills in our society. This study also tries to see if some of these retirees then move to areas of social development in voluntary social work activities, and continue to offer essential services to the development of their country. It attempts to see if Kuwaiti women are working within old boundaries or moving to new frontiers of development, i.e. to the same occupations that they did in the past or to some other professions in this rapidly changing society.
