Gender Inequality and Work

Robert Kaufman, American lawyer who is a specialist in fields as business and corporate laws, has written a book “Race, Gender, and the Labor Market: Inequalities at Work, where he tries to understand the nature of policy of inequality. This book does not contain the explanation of main reasons of gender inequality in labor market, but it provides its readers with the main ways to implement this inequality, which was not outlined in previous works that were examined. In my opinion, the best work that outlines main ideas and main reasons for gender inequality is the book by Robert Kaufman “Race, Gender, and the Labor Market: Inequalities at Work”, where the author explains theories of appearing of such inequality in modern society and provides readers with his own theory that was based on theories and suggestions made before.
