Restricted Civil Liberties

The law guarantees women's freedom of movement; however the fear of violence set out in the Physical Integrity section, particularly in the context of political violence, poses a threat to women's freedom of movement. With respect to decision making in the family over freedom of movement, the 1999 Demographic and Health Survey found that 21 percent of married women reported that their husbands had the final say over decisions to visit friends and relatives, compared to 37 percent of women who reported that they had the final say themselves over such decisions.

Women's rights in employment are protection by the Labour Act. The law prohibits discrimination, on the basis of gender, at all stages of employment, such as recruitment, selection, working conditions, training and promotion. Further, women are entitled to 98 days paid maternity leave at full pay.
