In recent years, increasing numbers of women have joined the global workforce. Their participation in the workforce is influenced by many factors, such as economic necessity, cultural norms, and the availability of child care. In Thailand, while the participation rate of women in the workforce is higher than average for the Asian region, evidence has shown that various obstacles stand in the way of women getting ahead in their careers (Bunbongkarn, 1989; Appold, Siengthai and Kasarda, 1998; Wailerdsak, 2008b). Indeed, relatively few Thai women hold significant decision-making positions in politics, the civil service or the private sector.
