The importance of informal employment of women in Turkey is emphasized and the strategies and policies that can be used to solve this socio-economic problem will be developed and proposed. There are not many studies that examine the position women in the informal sector in Turkey, in detail. The purpose of this study is to determine the position of women in the informal sector in Turkey, and the factors pushing them to work. In this research, the concept of female labor force participation rate (FLFPR) and informal economy will be defined as a first step. Furthermore, a general literature review –both national and international- will be provided. In addition, TurkStat statistics between 2015 and 2018 and Household Labour Force Surveys (HLFS) will be used to investigate the defined research question, statistically. While obtaining statistical results, the Multinomial Logistic Regression Analysis will be used.
