Resumen

Despite much legislative progress in gender equality over the past 40 years, there are still gender gaps across many aspects of the labour market. Inequalities are still evident in areas such as access to the labour market, employment patterns and associated working conditions. This report explores gender differences across several dimensions of working conditions, examining relevant country differences, analysing the different occupational groups of both men and women, and comparing the public and private sectors. It also looks at the impact of the crisis on gender segregation in employment. Based on findings from the fifth European Working Conditions Survey (EWCS), conducted in 2010, the analysis offers a striking picture of women and men at work across 34 European countries today. An executive summary is also available - see Related content.

    Condiciones laborales de hombres y mujeres en Europa

    Authors: 
    Eurofound
    La eliminación de las diferencias de género en el mercado laboral —como los niveles de remuneración y las tasas de empleo y desempleo—ha sido uno de los principales objetivos de la política comunitaria. Sin embargo, a pesar de grandes avances acontecidos en los últimos años, las desigualdades de género siguen siendo evidentes en áreas tales como el acceso al mercado de trabajo, los patrones de empleo y las condiciones de trabajo relacionadas. Este informe explora las diferencias de género a través de varias dimensiones de las condiciones laborales, mediante el estudio de las diferencias entre países relevantes, el análisis de los diferentes grupos ocupacionales de hombres y mujeres y la comparación de los sectores público y privado. También examina la repercusión de la crisis en la segregación en función del género en el empleo. Este análisis se basa en los resultados de la quinta Encuesta europea sobre las condiciones de trabajo (EWCS), realizada en 2010, para ofrecer un impactante panorama de la situación laboral actual de los hombres y mujeres en 34 países europeos.
