Sammanfattning: This study investigates the factors that influence female's labour supply and their wage forms. Human capital, demographic, social, and cultural factors were used to explore their impact on female labour supply and female wage form using a multinomial logistic model. The data for this study were employed from the Demographic and Health Survey (DHS) conducted in the Gambia in 2013. The result indicated that women in the urban areas are more likely to be in the category working than worked in the past 12 months compared to rural women who are mostly involved in seasonal work. The result for wage form and area of resident implies that a change from rural to urban increases the person's chances of receiving wages in cash. Whiles the result for educational attainment and female labour supply implies that the chances of someone having primary education and been in seasonal work is higher than the person with no education. For education and wage form, the result implies that the chances of someone having no education and receiving in-kind wages are higher than the person with primary education. Thus, the need for government to implement targeted policies to avoid the exploitation of women in the labour force.
