The changing maternal role of Ghanaian women: impacts of education, migration and employment



The changing maternal role of Ghanaian women: impacts of education, migration and employment



Working Paper, Population and Labour Policies Programme, World Employment Programme, ILO (143): 190



The changing role and status of women are important aspects of development, and are linked to fertility transition.
