Gender Segregation : Divisions of Work in Post-Industrial Welfare States, Hardback Book

Gender Segregation : Divisions of Work in Post-Industrial Welfare States Hardback


This insightful volume asks if, and to what extent, gender divisions in working life are changing.

The contributors discuss the implications from a labour market perspective and a family-work level perspective, which are combined to examine if and where patterns of gender integration can be found.

Research from several European countries is presented, as well as from the US, to provide comparative and international perspectives.

A wide range of related issues are tackled including questions of methodology and measurement, as well as segregation patterns, welfare state provisions and the use of parental leave. The volume provides suggestions for integration at different levels of society and, by applying a multidisciplinary approach and illustrating developments on different analytical levels, the authors further the discussion on how integration can be pursued.
