Based on structural and social psychological reasons, this paper investigates the effects of urbanism on women's labor force status at the cross-national level. Women's labor force status is looked at both for the female labor force as a percent of total labor force as a whole and for only those in the professional, technical and other white collar occupations. Urbanism is measured in terms of percentage of population residing in cities of 100,000 or more. Theoretically and empirically relevant variables to the study are included as control variables. The result of the analysis indicates that while urbanism does not have a visible and independent effect on the female participation as a whole, it does have a visible, independent and persistent effect on female labor force participation in professional, technical and other while collar related occupations. Implications of the findings are discussed.
