Women's employment is on the increase throughout Europe, and more women are going into managerial and professional ocupations. These changes are both cause and consequence of wider changes in the family, relations between the sexes, and social attitudes more generally. However, differences in national policies and attitudes mean that trends in women's employment show considerable variation across Europe. Restructuring Gender Relations and Employment investigates the differences in women's employment across Europe and explores the possibilities and limits of structural change and development. The book seeks to develop a new framework for the investigation of the changing mosaic of employment, family lives, and gender relations in contemporary Europe.
