Employment in the garment industry has played an instrumental role in the increase of independent migration of women (Afsar 2000: 123). Table 8 presents a list of the major female occupations in urban areas. Doctor, teacher and other

professional

jobs, which

only a small

segment of

are the

socially recognised as suitable for women, constitute

urban female labour market.

The tailor, dressmaker

category, which covers jobs in garment occupation, accounting for 30 percent of the

factories, constitutes the dominant total female urban labour force.
