Family, Social Networks And Gender Inequalities At The Labour Market In Serbia
The goal of this paper is to explore links and influences between patriarchal values of families as informal social networks and gender inequalities at the labour market in Serbia. The gender analysis of the labour market shows that it has been still under the strong influence of gender roles within a family. The high rate of exclusion of women from the labour market, particularly with low education, and from well-paid jobs, is largely a consequence of patriarchal patterns within a household. Men act as family providers, while the role of women tends to be is limited to the private sphere. The paper is aimed to indicate that gender regime in a society and inequalities that are rooted in the patriarchal values within a family cannot be eradicated solely by adopting anti-discrimination legislation and establishing formal mechanisms, without tackling and changing ethical values and gender regime within a family.
