Abstract:
Much inequality and the invisible nature of the specific risks facing working women stem from the organisation of work. The deeply entrenched nature of gender segregation on the labour market and sexist stereotypes only serves to reinforce the status quo: managerial posts are still predominantly filled by men and part-time hours are essentially the preserve of women.  The difficult nature of work in female-dominated sectors is ignored from a social perspective - unpaid labour (childcare, housework, etc.) is still regarded as women’s work.
