Explanation & Answer

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

In the developing countries, there is emphasis on gender and roles.Women are required to d tasks that are uneconomical. For instance, the society perceives them as people that must stay at home and take care of children while men go to work to take care of their families.Women can not roles that the society considers odd for the women gender such as the construction industry.The situation reduces the women to people that can engage in limited number of economic activities hence less productive than men

The situation is unique to developing countries. In the developed countries, women have rights to opportunity like men do and they are more empowered to engage in different jobs. Hence women in developed countries contribute significantly to household income unlike their counterparts in the developing countries
