At the end of 2018, women represented 27.9% of all registered members of the Trade and Industry Directory. The number of females with a SARL business entity equated to 30%, while 21.4% of all Monegasque limited companies (SAM) were registered by females.

The latest figures do not differ significantly from the previous year.

In total, there were 56,303 employees in Monaco at the end of 2018, and 40.2% of these were women, the majority of whom worked in the private sector.

There are slightly more women employed in the Principality’s public sphere, at 42.6%.

Not surprisingly, some sectors remain female-dominated, including administration, education, health and social action, where the participation rate is more than 70%. Meanwhile, women make up 60% of employees in household, artistic and recreation-related positions.

Working women in Monaco tend to be closer to their place of employment: 47.1% live in Monaco or in neighboring municipalities, compared to 36.1% of men.
