Original title: Emancipatiemonitor 2014

Women’s emancipation is a subject that occasionally leads to heated debate. Some believe that women should be able to decide for themselves whether they work, and for how many hours each week. Others point out that women are in a weaker financial position than men because many of them work part-time. The Emancipation Monitor 2014 (Emancipatiemonitor 2014 ) presents the most recent data on the emancipation process in the Netherlands. It discusses the position of women and men in a large number of domains and presents the most recent statistics on education, paid employment, combining work and care tasks, income, senior positions and violence against women. This Emancipation Monitor also contains chapters devoted to health and an international comparison.

The Emancipation Monitor is published jointly by the Netherlands Institute for Social Research | SCP and Statistics Netherlands (CBS) at the request of the Emancipation Department of the Dutch Ministry of Education, Culture and Science.
