An article in TheMarker – Why Does a Haredi Woman Work Less Hours Than a Secular Woman? – summarizes a recent study conducted by Nitsa (Kaliner) Kasir that was recently published in the Society and Culture Law legal journal.

The study reveals that Haredi women work an avarage of 30 hours per week, compared with 37 weekly hours among other women.

The study examines which factors determine Haredi women’s working hours – such as dependance on part-time jobs – and recommendations for how the state and employers can help raise these hours by introducing simple adjustments.
