This case study examines the work conditions and circumstances of female workers in beauty salons as compared to those of male workers in barbershops in four governorates in the West Bank (Ramallah, Tulkarem, Nablus, Bethlehem), and the Gaza Strip. The case study also addresses the right of female and male workers to join and form trade unions, and their knowledge related to this topic. The research was conducted during a period of two months, in December 2016 and January 2017. Through this case study, we also seek to shed light on the situation of unions for beauty salons and barbershops, work conditions and circumstances, and the pros and cons of working in this sector as addressed by the workers themselves. The findings of the questionnaires, conclusions and recommendations were analyzed based on a gender perspective. Please click on the attachment to read more.
