Description - Doing Women's Studies by Gabriele Griffin
The great expansion of the European Union will further affect the employment opportunities of women. This book explores the complex inter-relationship between women's employment, the institutionalization of equal opportunities, and Women's Studies training. Drawing on extensive empirical evidence, it reveals significant differences amongst specific European countries and comes up with some startling findings about women's actual experiences of the job market. It analyses the changing patterns of women's employment; equal opportunities; educational migration; gender, race, ethnicity and nationality; and the uneven prevalence and impact of Women's Studies on the lifestyles and everyday practices of those women who have experienced it.
