Gender, Education and Employment: An International Comparison of School-To-Work Transitions
edited by Hans-Peter Blossfeld, Jan Skopek, Moris Triventi, and Sandra Buchholz
For much of the twentieth century, women lagged considerably behind men in their educational attainment. However, in recent decades, young women have become an important source of human capital for labor markets in modern societies, as well as potential competitors to the male workforce.
The book Gender, Education and Employment , as a result of eduLIFE Phase 2, asks whether or not women have been able to convert their educational success into gains on the labor market. The expert contributors address the topic on a comparative level with discussions centred on gendered school-to-work transitions and gendered labor market outcomes. Thereafter they analyze the country-specific implications of the gender redress from a wide range of countries including the USA, Russia and Australia.
