This chapter considers the definition and measurement of gender segregation before summarising key arguments about its possible causes. The discussion is organised around three areas. First, gender segregation as outcome of rational decisions and/or preferences of individual men and women. Second, the links between formal institutions, regulations and practices that can lead to gendered divisions of labour that are closely linked with relatively unfavourable labour market outcomes for women. Third, the extent to which gender can be considered as separable from the institutional and labour market contexts.
