Vient de paraître : « Gendered Employment Policies: European Social Models and Gendered Employment Today » dans Working Women, 1800-2017: A Never-Ending (R)Evolution, ouvrage dirigé par Martine Stirling and Delphine Sangu, chez Cambridge Scholars Publishing, Newcastle upon Tyne, 2021, pp.25-36.

This paper continues work previously done on gendered employment, particularly with respect to the public services and in particular the education, health, and care sectors in European countries (United Kingdom, France, Italy, Denmark and Norway).[1] It explores whether the welfare typology noted within Europe influences gendered employment and looks at how gendered employment policies initiated within the European social policy framework have affected that. Based on statistical evidence from various European and governmental agencies, the discussion looks in particular at the United Kingdom and its place in the welfare model typology in view of the gendered employment policies which were initiated from the turn of the 21st century.
