Spatial and historical variations in women's unemployment and employment (UK)

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


One important question arising from the study of women's participation in paid work is whether sex-segregation protects women from, or makes them more vulnerable to, unemployment. The relationship between male and female rates of unemployment varies over time, and from place to place. This suggests systematic differences in the strength and interaction of capitalist and patriarchal principles. This is demonstrated with respect to changes in women's employment in various UK regions in the 19th and 20th centuries.
