Employment, Earnings and Positions of Authority
In this chapter, we shall examine the impact of the post-war increase in the proportion of women in the labour force of Czechoslovakia (from 38 per cent in 1948 to nearly 48 per cent in 1975) upon (1) the sexual division of labour, (2) the structure of remuneration and (3) the distribution of positions of authority. At present only the USSR (with 51 per cent) and the GDR (with 49 per cent) have more women in the labour force. By contrast, the proportion of women in the labour force in Western capitalist countries is much lower, ranging from 27 to 38 per cent, including many women employed on a part-time basis.
