Challenges Facing Women in the Mining, Energy and Construction Sectors of South Africa: Persisting barriers to equity in the workplace


This book captures the findings of one of the most in-depth and extensive researches ever undertaken on women’s welfare in the workplace. It focuses especially on the three previously male-dominated sectors of Mining, Energy and Construction. The book chronicles the challenges women continue to face in these sectors, and concludes with policy recommendations on how the barriers women face in the workplace can be mitigated and, ultimately, how they can be overcome.
