Gendering European Working Time Regimes: a book symposium, 29 March 2017, 4-6pm, Queen Mary.
A book symposium organised by the Centre for Research on Law, Equality and Diversity (LEAD) for Ania Zbyszewska's book Gendering European Working Time Regimes (CUP) is taking place on 29 March 2017 from 4-6pm in Room 313, Third Floor, Law Building, Queen Mary University of London, Mile End Road E1 4NS. The standard approach to regulating working hours rests on gendered assumptions about how paid and unpaid work ought to be divided. In this book, Ania Zbyszewska takes a feminist, socio-legal approach to evaluate whether the contemporary European working time regimes can support a more equal sharing of this work. Focusing on the legal and political developments surrounding the EU's Working Time Directive and the reforms of Poland's Labour Code, Zbyszewska reveals that both regimes retain this traditional gender bias, and suggests the reasons for its persistence.
