Only one-fifth of working-age Arab women hold jobs
The percentage of Arab women in the labor force has doubled since 1970 but only 20.5% hold jobs today.
Only 20.5% of working-age Arab women hold jobs, less than a third the rate for Jewish women and far under the 72% for Arab men, say Eren Shaniv of Tel Aviv University and Nitsa Kesar of the Bank of Israel.
