Abstract: This paper analyses the impact of gender inequality of Tunisia. Our empirical study is based on a series of annual data from 1995 to 2013 in Tunisia. We have regressed growth rate of real gross domestic product (GDPP) per capita on labour force growth, investment, trade openness and a composite index of gender inequality. The empirical results confirm the presence of a labour force growth; investment and trade openness have statistically significant and positive impact whereas gender inequality has a significant and negative effect on economic growth of Tunisia.
