Patterns of health-related exclusion from working life – taking history into account.

Sammendrag

In most dual breadwinner societies, women have higher rates of sickness absence and disability pension than men. Empirical studies have addressed the double burden of work and family, the gender segregated working life with corresponding differences in exposure, and sex differences in health to explain the sickness absence and disability gap. However, these studies have not been able to fully explain women’s higher level of health-related absence from work. In Norway, the consistent gender gap in sickness absence and disability pension receives considerable attention among politicians and in the public discourse. In this article we identify and analyse major policy initiatives, aimed at gender equality and increased working life participation among women, implemented in Norway after WWII. The societal changes emerging in the wake of these initiatives are discussed as structural drivers for the present-day gender difference in sickness absence and disability pension.
