19.10.2016 / Created by (EMWF)

This report focuses on the importance of gender equality in economic rights and independence, including access to employment, appropriate working conditions and control over economic resources. The report analyses the effects of part-time work and self-employment, on the economic independence of women and men, as well as on gender equality. On the basis of this analysis, the European Institute for Gender Equality (EIGE) proposed a set of indicators and sub-indicators in the area of women and the economy that were endorsed by the Council in June 2014.
