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.
