Bulletin on Women and Employment in the EU. 1994-1996.
Bulletin on Women and Employment in the EU, n4-9 Apr 1994-Oct 1996
These six bulletins examine various aspects of women's employment in the European Union (EU). In the first bulletin, the different positions of women in the labor markets of the individual EU member countries are demonstrated to mirror the roles of women in each country's family and welfare system. The problems of unemployment and underemployment among women throughout the EU countries are analyzed in the second bulletin, which makes a case for the proposition that women's employment is the key to a higher European employment rate. In the third bulletin, time is shown to be a gender issue, and the question of whether gender equality and the fight against unemployment are complementary or competitive objectives of the EU is examined. The fourth bulletin documents the correlation between higher levels of economic activity among women and school completion throughout the EU. In the fifth bulletin, an analysis of wages by gender confirms that increasing female participation in the labor market has failed to close the gender pay gap. The sixth bulletin focuses on employment patterns by gender and demonstrates the disproportionate numbers of women in part-time and temporary jobs throughout the EU. (MN)
