Abstract: This paper examines economic growth in Tunisia and the role that women have played in that growth. Economic growth is evaluated by considering contributions to GDP growth, changes in productivity and employment ratio and social indicators to determine sources of growth. The results show that women did positively impact Tunisia’s economic growth through increased labor force participation, increased working age population to total population ratio, and increased consumption.
