Economic Independence and the Position of Women on the Labour Market of the European Union. In-depth Analysis

PE 509.990 
Document requested by the Commitee on Women’s Rights and Gender Equality




Upon request of the FEMM committee, this study examines the position of women on the labour market, drawing particular attention to factors behind the gender pay gap and the gender gap in pensions. The current crisis presents aspects that no other crisis has shown before. On the surface, gaps between men and women are being bridged but under the surface things are more complex and effects more diversified. Overall, there is a need to introduce a gender perspective in the recovery measures: it would help to get out of the current situation sooner and better.
