    The Constitutional law on gender parity in the labour market registered a smaller evolution in Italy than in Europe and in the rest of Western countries, so that the present Italian primary laws are somehow more backward than they used to be 60 years ago. The European Union, however ,is pushing us in the right direction. Furthermore, the gap between the laws on gender parity and the real condition of men and women in the Italian labour market is large. If one observes the male-female effective differentials in access, treatment, wages, Italian women are penalized by cultural traditions and the home and children caretaking. Compared with the rest of Europe, the situation of Italian female relative to male workers is particularly discriminated in the career paths and in the horizontal and vertical segregation.
