dc.description.abstractThe participation of women in the labour market is one of the key trends to affect all countries over recent years. Malta has the lowest female employment rate amongst EU member states. Women's primary focus on the family is the key determinant of women's intermittent labour force participation. Outside forces also significantly determine women's choices. Childcare is a major influence on women's employment preference. especially for those who prefer a combination of motherhood and employment. Their social and economic contribution makes them indispensable to tile growth of a culture, which unites reason and feelings. Thus, the availability of a childcare service is one of the factors that would be most welcomed by future mothers. This research shows the relationship between mothers' demand for childcare and their employment.en_GB
