Why Women Do Not Participate in Labor Unions

This paper reviews previous research trying to explain why women do not participate in labor unions. An overview of the four studies is discussed, along with what recommendations those studies provide to increase women’s participation in labor unions. Statistics from the year the first study was released in 1986, through 2002 provide the framework for further analysis of the recommendations made. The author suggests combining the previous research recommendations which offers the opportunity for further study.
