Abstract

The major theoretical purpose of the paper is to investigate the implications of globalising and restructuring urban economies on gender-related differences in occupational distribution and earnings within the urban context. The study uses data from national censuses (1983 and 1995) and a labour force survey of 2001, in Israel, to investigate the evolution of gender gaps in Tel-Aviv. The findings that point to the erosion of advantages in the globalising and restructuring urban economy, compared with the nation as a whole, may indicate new potential sources of gender inequality. The theoretical implications, for both the restructuring and globalisation theses and the study of sources of inequality among men and women, are discussed.
