Abstract

What factors affect the percentage of women who participate in labour markets across Europe? Sonja Avlijas presents evidence from Eastern Europe, noting that while many countries in the region had high female employment rates during the socialist period, this picture has become much more varied since the transition away from socialism in the 1990s. She suggests that the experience of Eastern Europe highlights why policymakers should place greater emphasis on understanding how economic growth strategies affect women’s economic opportunities.
