    Helina, (center), 25, works for a real estate construction firm in Addis Ababa, the capital of Ethiopia. She is overseeing the construction of three apartment buildings. Women working in construction used to be a rare sight in Addis but because of a construction boom, more women are wearing hard hats. World Bank research shows that sectors that are traditionally male-dominated provide an opportunity for women to earn higher returns. Photo: © Stephan Gladieu / World Bank
