The employment of refugee women is a recurrent concern for international organisations and NGOs whose programmes provide protection and basic needs. Refugee women are commonly viewed as more vulnerable and at greater risk of poverty than their male counterparts. In the current context, many have sought refuge in Jordan without their husbands, and many serve as the head of household. Their participation in the labour market is a growing point of interest for stakeholders seeking to make livelihoods more accessible to Syrian refugees.
