Equal opportunities for women and men on the labour market

Nowadays, it seems obvious that women should be allowed to vote. However, a good 100 years ago, it was very unusual for many women to be allowed to vote.

Since that time, equality of the sexes has been achieved by many – at least, the people of Europe’s awareness of inequality has grown in recent years. Now comes the time to right any wrongs that may exist in all areas of life.

In 2008, members of the European Centre for Worker’s Questions (EZA) analysed and evaluated areas of interest from the world of work, as well as drawing up a list of measures to be put in place. In particular, the challenge of flexible working hours, the situation of female immigrants, the recognition of family working, a fair wage and the significance of education and training came under the microscope and included in project coordination, comprising five activities. In this brochure, EZA would like to highlight the specific added value achieved by networking the themes, in order to achieve the overall goal of improving the reconciliation of jobs and family.

This brochure is available in German, English, Spanish, French, Italian and Polish and can be requested from EZA.
