Abstract: The study examines women’s work in two sectors- banking and paid domestic work; the formal and informal economy sectors are illustrative of some important developments in the character of women’s work. Three decades of economic liberalization have changed the structure of the labour force and women’s place within it as well as employment relations. The research provided the opportunity for strengthening local networking with the Trade Unions and civil society organizations such as LAWA Ghana who have done pioneering work on domestic labour. The research provided information for dissemination and towards policy making and strengthened research capacity.
