Globalization, Uncertainty and Women’s Careers – An International Comparison
The book represents the first-ever longitudinal analysis of micro-level data from these OECD contries focusing exclusively on women’s relationship to the labor market in a globalizing world. The contributors thoroughly examine women’s employment entries, exits and job mobility and present evidence of women’s increased labor market attachment and reduced employment quality in most of the countries studied. They also systematically consider the life course changes influenced by larger transformations in society and, in doing so, explicitly link the phenomena of globalization to individual women’s lives in Europe and North Africa.
