Abstract

In these last years, the labour market dynamics have been influenced by many factors, as the remarkable growth of female labour participation in the most of European Countries, the tertiarization of economies and the global economic crisis. Nevertheless, many gender disparities in labour market occur even if their incidence is very different across Countries. Analyzing gender differences in labour market means to take into account gender gaps in employment and in wages, but also vertical and horizontal segregation. In this paper differences in labour market between men and women generating segregation are analyzed, focusing specifically on conditions of women working in the tourism sector, trying to understand if there is evidence of a stronger segregation in this sector. Our analysis starts from Italy and a comparison with Greece, Ireland and United Kingdom is proposed.
