This research on gender and the labour market in South East England was funded by the South East of England Development Agency/European Social Fund. In volume 1 we set out the context: theoretical explanations for gender equality, the legal framework and organisational factors. Moreover, using a range of published data, we answered the first of our research questions: how does the labour market position of women in the government region of the South East of England compare with that of both men in the South East and that of women in Great Britain/United Kingdom?
In this volume we turn our attention to our other research questions:
• What policies and practices do employers in South East England adopt in respect of gender equality?
• What barriers do employers and women employees in South East England identify in respect of gender and employment?
