A women’s place

Research by Chwarae Teg 

Our research demonstrates that women are still less likely to work than men, there is an enduring gap between women’s and men’s earnings and we still need many more women to reach positions of influence.

This short report summarises the findings of this major and unique study. Findings are based on an extensive review of existing research, a survey of 600 women and 400 employers, plus an additional 25 in-depth interviews with women working in the Welsh Government’s ‘priority sectors’; that is, those sectors which have been identified by the Welsh Government for targeted intervention.

Our findings show that although considerable progress has been made, gender inequality, stereotyping and segregation are still evident in the Welsh workplace.
