Women's participation in employment on an equal basis with men in a country allows them to contribute to the economy of that country. Especially in Turkey, women, who constitute the vast majority of the population, should work and produce to contribute to the national economy. Women's participation in business life started late compared to that of men’s. Women were forced to work by being deprived of many rights, although it was accepted in societies over time. It took time for working women to receive compensation for their work as social rights, and the laws on social rights were not implemented.
