Abstract: This study empirically investigates the impact of import protection on female labor using a panel dataset of 211 countries. Our findings suggest that import protection increases female labor participation rate in capital abundant countries, whereas decreases in labor abundant ones. This result is also in line with the stylized view that female labor benefits from labor intensive production which requires less formal training and lower job skills.
