Tanzania Tanzania has enacted policies to create an enabling, gender-equal environment. This underlies its high female labour force participation (80%), though more women remain unemployed/underemployed than men. Besides supporting women to access higher growth/better paying roles, aligning the provisions and enforcement of statutory, customary, and religious laws would support women and their communities.
