From gender segregation to equality

Backwards and forwards

Vibeke Kold

The Scandinavian labour markets are cha-racterised by af high degree of gender se-gregation. Women and men dominate in different trades, occupations, and work functions. Is that the primary reason why women and men do also have unequal working conditions? If that is the case, should the strategy for real equality then imply a higher degree of gender integration in working life? The article discusses the relations between the horizontal and the vertical gender segregation at work on the basis of examples from the last 100 years of development in the Scandinavian labour markets.
