Women in the Labour Market
Two Decades of Change and Continuity
This report summarises the main trends and issues in women's employment in the two decades up to 1995.
It provides information on economic activity, full-time and part-time work, industrial and occupational change, pay and women's educational attainment.
This is followed by a discussion on the extent to which women remained at a disadvantage in the labour market. This highlights key areas in which progress had been made and evidence of continued discrimination on the basis of gender.
