Women’s Employment in the EC

  • Jane Pillinger

Abstract

The Single European Market is designed to facilitate free trade through the removal of physical, technical and human barriers. The effects the single market will have on women’s employment have led women throughout Europe to feel concerned that new patterns of trade and monetary and economic policy will exacerbate women’s vulnerable and unprotected patterns of work throughout the EC. Given that women start from a weaker position in the labour market than men, for instance in terms of pay and access to training and highly paid skilled work, they will equally be placed in a weaker position in competing for jobs, training and skilled work in the single market
