How is women's employment shaped by family and domestic responsibilities? This book, written by leading experts in the field, examines twenty-five years of change in women's employment and addresses the challenges facing women today.
The authors offer an innovative analysis of how global changes including new migration processes, educational expansion, transnational labour markets, technological advances and the global economy affect women's labour market experiences. They tackle issues relevant for future change, including gender inequalities and ethnic diversities, and confront contentious questions such as what is meant by work-life balance. The book provides new empirical research that both advances our understanding of the challenges posed by women's employment in our changing society and draws out the policy lessons that could improve economic and social wellbeing.
Providing dynamic analysis of employment-family inter relationships, Women and Employment will be of great relevance to social scientists and academics interested in employment and family as well as policymakers concerned with changing women's employment.
