Summary/Abstract: In parallel with the developments in the world and the phenomenon of globalization, social, cultural and technological changes have occurred and societies have evolved. However, unfortunately, despite many changes, perceptions and perspectives towards women in a patriarchal society have not changed. Therefore, women could not take a step forward in society and were forced to live in the background. This situation also confronted women when they wanted to enter the labor market. Despite the importance of women in economic development and in the workforce, the perceptions that they are seen as a secondary workforce and that they should work only in case of economic difficulties are reflected in the rates in the workforce. However, economic development is one of the important problems for the welfare of a country. In order to solve this problem, it is a critical point to focus on women employment for countries. However, the rates in Turkey show that female employment is very low compared to male employment in every field. In this study, the employment status of women is evaluated according to education, sector, occupation, unregistered employment and marital status by using literature review and Turkish Statistical Institute (TUIK) data. In addition, the problems faced by women in employment, such as gendered perspective, occupational discrimination, inequality in remuneration, insufficient educational opportunities, lack of career development opportunities, mobbing (psychological harassment) and sexual harassment are included. In the results section, suggestions were made to increase women employment.
