Statistical Profiles of Women’s and Men’s Status in the Economy, Science and Society

?This book follows multiple threads. It discusses the concept of gender, which is an essential category of analysis in the social sciences. It then focuses on women's and men's professional, political, and social circumstances, such as the workplace and time management and their activities in the research and development and patent sectors. These categories delineate the scope of "innovative gender" as a critical tool of analysis through which we can appreciate with greater depth the role of gender in the innovation process.
This book initiates a novel approach to a widely discussed concept in the literature. It integrates multilevel and interdisciplinary research exploring differences in the statistical profiles of women and men and their effects on innovation for national economies within the European Union.
