This work is based on papers presented at a conference entitled ""The Sex of Labour Law in Europe/Le Sexe du droit du travail en Europe"", which was held at the European University Institute in Florence.;The contributors argue that law in general, and especially social and labour law, is not asexual, and that law has been written from a male point of view. As a consequence, many rules and regulations do not take into account a typical female point of view and therefore appear to disregard the position of women, which leads in many cases to sexual inequality. The contributors give a detailed account of the position of women in labour law in their own jurisdiction. The text should be of interest to academics and practitioners involved in labour law, human rights, gender studies and women's studies.
