Gender disparities in European labour markets: A comparison of conditions for men and women in paid employment

Rosalia Castellano and Antonella Rocca

International Labour Review, 2018, vol. 157, issue 4, 589-608

Abstract: Although the dramatic increase in female labour force participation in recent decades has been connected to significant changes in economic opportunities for women, gender disparities in the labour market persist in many forms. This article seeks to assess whether higher gender differentials in European labour markets are directly related to poor economic conditions. To this end, the results of a composite indicator designed and developed by the authors in a previous study are updated and three new composite indicators are constructed for a separate analysis of female and male labour market conditions and gender gap for paid employment.
