  • Book Details

There is a good deal of country-specific information on women's employment, but a cross-national comparison over time seems to be lacking. That is the issue taken up in this volume, which contains comparative studies written by authors from the United States, Hungary, Germany, and the Netherlands.

In some countries where public childcare is lacking, employers try to fulfill the needs of working mothers by offering childcare or parental leave arrangements. These are only a few examples of insights into differing circumstances in women's employment that are provided in this book, which make it a contri-bution both to gender studies and to studies of the sociology of work.
