The goal of this paper was to analyze the relationship between women's labor force participation and socioeconomic changes associated with structural adjustment in China and Congo Brazzaville. We conclude that structural adjustment policies have led to an increase in feminization of the labor force in these two countries. But the high female labour force participation has not ensured gender equality in occupations. Women were found to concentrate in low-paid unskilled types of work.
