Abstract

The persistent gendering of labour markets appears surprising in the face of women’s increased integration into employment and political efforts for equal opportunities. As a consequence, numerous theoretical approaches have been developed that seek to answer the questions why women and men are distributed unequally over occupations and hierarchical positions, why there are country differences, and why occupational sex segregation still persists.
