Occupational Segregation by Sex in Nordic Countries: An Empirical Investigation.
Melkas, Helina; Anker, Richard
International Labour Review, v136 n3 p341-63 Fall 1997
Analysis of data from 200 occupations 1970-90 shows that one-third of all workers in Finland, Norway, and Sweden would have to change occupations to eliminate gender segregation. Despite Nordic nations' commitment to equality, women often work in female-dominated or part-time occupations and typically earn less. (SK)
