We complement analyses of both gender and ethnic inequality by examining cleavages among women of different ethnic and migrant groups, with a particular focus on labour force participation. Such differences can be shown to be shaped by gender attitudes and norms, which are relatively slow changing, are transmitted intergenerationally and are socially embedded. We also examine the benefits of taking a household and individual income perspective on economic inequalities, extending existing analysis of earnings and employment. This facilitates the investigation of the economic position of women both in and out of the labour market, and how their income relates to the resources of other family members. By these means we can shed light on the ways in which gendered processes that are common across ethnic groups can nevertheless result in differentiated outcomes that may persist across generations. This can enhance our understanding of persistence and change in gendered inequalities more widely.
