Abstract [en]

During the reign of traditional forms of organization - excess specialization and hierarchy - female participation in paid, ‘statistically counted’ work was much lower than for men. Insofar as women participated in working life, they tended to cluster on the lower levels of organization, as well as in highly specialized work. The main exception was health care where the work roles were more varied, but where there was a strong element of traditional family patterns brought into the workplace. This situation gave rise, several decades ago, to a movement towards more women in work, more equal opportunities in work, more women on higher organizational levels, more women in varied and challenging work and a more even distribution of men and women in all spheres of working life. In one important respect, this movement has been successful. In all the Scandinavian countries the share of women in work closely approaches that of men, in fact Sweden and Norway are world leaders in female employment. But what about the other issues? © Palgrave Macmillan, a division of Macmillan Publishers Limited 2011.
