The state of play of gender equality in the social and solidarity economy

25.03.2019 / Created by (EMWF)

This publication draws up a first national state of play of gender equality in the Social and Solidarity Economy (SSE). This study compares the SSE with the rest of the economy areas, to identify its strengths and areas of improvement. The study shows that SSE is not spared by gender inequalities: women’s employment is highly polarized (1 in 2 women work in social service), the glass ceiling persists (1 woman is 2 times less likely than a man to have access to a managerial or senior position), part-time work weighs more on women (41% of women’s employment compared with 25% for men), etc.
