Women's incomes

Siobhan Austen, Gerry Redmond

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


The last 25 years have seen substantial changes in women’s economic
circumstances. The proportion of women earning their own incomes has
risen, and levels of economic autonomy experienced by women have
increased. During the last decade, however, women’s relative economic
position, as measured by their share of total gross personal income, has
remained largely unchanged. This article examines some of the factors
that have influenced the share of income received by women, including
growth in employment, changes in sources of income and differences
between partnered and single women.
