Sri Lanka, Kilinochchi, 11 May 2015  In Sri Lanka, women's participation in the labour market is 35 percent compared with 76.4 percent for men. In the Northern and Eastern Provinces, where women are particularly disadvantaged, it is difficult for them to find a job and when they find one, they are paid half of their male counterparts' wages. In Northern and Uva provinces, 55 percent of households headed by women are food-insecure compared with 39 percent of households headed by men.  WFP encourages gender empowerment in Sri Lanka by running trainings to provide women with marketable skills and increase their economic independence.
