The economic participation and opportunity is one of the global gender gap index according to World Economic Forum. Equalizing economic participation and opportunity for male and female can help to create gender equality. The issue on gender equality is basically addressing the disadvantages that women are dealing with. One of the disadvantages is women do not have equal access as men have to work or simply cannot participate to the labour force. This study examines the socio-economic condition factor, geographic location factors, and individual characteristics of women’s work participation in West Sumatra. Many studies have proved the determinant of women’s work participation encompass the age of female population, educational attainment, marital status, and wage rate. This study uses core data from National Labour Force Survey (NLFS) data collected by Statistics Indonesia. By employing binomial probit regression, the results indicate that age, income, household size, education level, marital status, residence area, and being a head of household portray different impact on the decision making of women’s work participation
