Chapter Summary

This chapter describes the phenomenon of employment discrimination against women in China. Discrimination against women varies in different fields, at different positions, and at different stages of employment. The particularly prominent aspects are as follows: employment opportunities are unequal; retirement age and pensions are unequal; men and women receive different pay for the same work; and segregation of the sexes at work. The chapter then discusses the reasons that lie behind this situation. It also examines the existing legal framework relating to employment discrimination against women. Finally, the chapter presents feasible solutions to resolve such discrimination.

Keywords: China; employment discrimination; ethnicity; labour mechanisms; marketisation; pension; race; retirement age; sex; women
