Abstract
This study examines the relationship between mobility and women's female labor force participation and empowerment in Saudi Arabia. The researchers use a Randomized Controlled Trial to examine the impact of treatments designed to increase mobility, including subsidies for ride-sharing and assistance with obtaining a driving license. This will allow the team to quantify how female mobility affects labor market outcomes for female employees and jobseekers, and ultimately women’s empowerment.
