This is a report from Incomes Data Services (IDS) for the International Trade Union Confederation (ITUC) on the factors influencing women’s decisions for work. The main objective of the report is to examine the factors that influence women’s decisions for work and to what extent these ‘decisions’ are limited by the opportunities available to women compared with men.
