Gender Equality Around the World

Articles from World of Work magazine 1999-2006

This compelling and comprehensive collection of articles highlights good practices in gender equality in the world of work. The articles, all of which have been featured in the ILO's World of Work magazine from 1999 to present, are international in scope, covering such issues as women job seekers in Estonia, an innovative life-cycle approach to gender equality in Tanzania, and progressive policies on paternity leave in Norway.

The initiatives presented here not only reveal the intrinsic nature of gender equality in decent work, but reflect on the ILO's response to critical issues through the support of governments, employers' and workers' organizations across the globe. Includes over 20 pages of photographs.
