Unfortunately, the increase of unemployment of educated females is increasing across the population accompanied with privatization that laid-off a large number of women especially in rural areas. The Egyptian economy reform that is currently ongoing in Egypt, has affected women in a negative way in comparison to men and especially in the production sector. Besides the fact that the economic growth does not provide employment at large, the private sector also does not favor employing women for the sole reason that they are aware that women prioritize their household to their job, however, they don’t provide services that would enable women to tend to their multiple roles as a mother and an
They argue that in capitalist societies, there is less emphasis on communal aspects and more emphasis on sexual partner and transformation of family into a means through which property can be inherited. This is very important to those who own private property because the Patriarchy and ownership of the women as part of the private property. Therefore Marxist feminists argue that gender inequality is the result of the development of the private property, there is that interconnection to class relationship (Anderson, 2012). Moreover, Marxist feminists argue that because of this gender division of labour, women’s work is devaluated on average. Because, in capitalist societies, most women are in the secondary market usually hunting jobs.
Gender discrimination in work circumstances takes on many different forms; ranging from different payments between men and women who perform the same duties equally as well as when the income of men and women and retirement savings are stacked up against their health care cost and life expectancies, women are much farther behind than men are. The gender wage gap results on women making less money than men do for doing the exact same job. In every occupational category there is a gender pay gap favouring full-time working men over full-time working women. The capacity of this gap depends on numerous factors like work, family and societal factors, including society’s stereotypes about the work that women and men expected to do in society’s view do and the way women and men ‘’should’’ engage in the workforce.

Although we might think that developing countries are worse than developed countries when it comes to gender inequality, we still observe this problem in both types of countries. Inequality issues that is seen in many countries throughout the world is the lack of participation in politics from the women 's side and the difference in salary between men and women. These can be due to the fact that men are more privileged and women are seen as less productive. Alene et al.

Another aspect to the relatively poor is the presence of one source of income in a household unlike most households where multiple members contribute to the household economy; this makes the financial situation tighter and more difficult to live with. This sector of population in the country mostly consists of unskilled labour so most take up blue-collar jobs, serve as domestic help and other easily replaceable jobs like bus conductors, auto-rickshaw drivers, clerks etc. These jobs provide neither sufficient income nor livelihood security. Unlike the rural poor, the urban poor do not have the advantage of depending on agriculture for sustenance.
