Gender and jobs : sex segregation of occupations in the world by Richard Anker( Book )

24 editions published between 1997 and 2001 in English and held by 522 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book presents a comprehensive analysis of the levels and recent changes in the sex segregation of occupations. It is based on a unique new ILO data set which contains detailed occupational data from 41 countries or territories from all regions of the world. As shown by new evidence presented here, well over half of all non-agricultural workers in the sample countries and areas work in an occupation where one sex dominates to such an extent that at least 80 per cent of workers are either men or women. This negatively affects economic efficiency and labour market flexibility as well as perpetuating and reinforcing gender stereotypes in society. A number of findings will surprise readers, such as the higher level of occupational segregation in Scandinavia as compared to other industrialized countries, the lower level of occupational segregation in Asia as compared to Europe, the recent decreases in segregation in only some parts of the world, and the truly restricted and sex-stereotyped choice of occupations open to the world's women

Women in the labour market in changing economies : demographic issues by Brígida García( Book )

15 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 300 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This text examines a central issue in understanding changes in demographic patterns and the labour market - the increased participation of women in the workforce and how the nature of this participation has developed. In the context of such economic and labour phenomena as globalization, increasing flexibility in work patterns, intermittent and part-time employment and in many countries high underemployment or unemployment, the role of women workers has transformed dramatically. This book explores a number of demographic issues associated with these developments, such as migration in the developed world and transition economies, family formation and dissolution, the autonomy of women migrants, household composition, the evolution of gender systems and contraceptive behaviour, both as factors that determine the labour market conditions for women and their income levels, and as demographic outcomes
