Women and Employment. Policies for Equal Opportunities.
Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development, Paris (France).
This document contains the proceedings of a high-level conference on the Employment of Women, attended by labor ministers and other high officials of countries belonging to the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD). Delegates to the conference adopted a 14-point declaration pledging themselves to achieve equality of opportunity particularly for the conditions in the employment of women. During the conference, the representatives examined (1) the implication of high and rising participation rates of women workers in the various countries, despite slack labor markets since the mid-1970's and (2) the persistence of labor market segregation despite equal opportunity policies already practiced in most member countries. This report presents the declaration drawn up by the conference, the analytical papers for the conference, and the opening addresses by the secretary-general of the OECD and the Minister of Labor of Denmark, who served as president of the conference. A list of participants and observers is included in the appendix to the document. (KC)
