This book brings together the latest European and North American research on a series of key topics in the field of women's employment.

The book explores:

  • occupational segregation
  • the pay gap
  • work-life balance
  • part-time working
  • women, work and pensions
  • women in professional occupations
  • equality and diversity management
  • women and trade unions.
