Abstract

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.

    Mulheres, homens e condições de trabalho na Europa

    Authors: 
    Eurofound
    A redução das disparidades entre homens e mulheres no mercado de trabalho – designadamente no que respeita às taxas de emprego e de desemprego e aos níveis de remuneração – tem sido um dos principais objetivos políticos da União Europeia. Contudo, apesar dos grandes progressos realizados nos últimos anos, as desigualdades de género ainda são evidentes em domínios como o acesso ao mercado de trabalho, os padrões de emprego e as condições de trabalho a estes associadas. O presente relatório debruça-se sobre as diferenças de género em diversas vertentes das condições de trabalho, examinando as diferenças nacionais relevantes, analisando os diversos grupos profissionais de homens e mulheres, e comparando os setores público e privado. Aborda também o impacto da crise na segregação dos géneros no emprego e, com base nos resultados do Quinto Inquérito Europeu sobre as Condições de Trabalho (EWCS), realizado em 2010, traça um quadro notável dos homens e mulheres que trabalham atualmente em 34 países europeus.
