Women in the Netherlands work less than men, have lesser titles, and have a big gender pay gap — and they love it.
Though the Netherlands is consistently ranked in the top five countries for women, less than 10 percent of women here are employed full-time. And they like it this way.
Incentives to nudge women into full-time work have consistently failed. Less than 4 percent of Dutch women wish they had more working hours or increased responsibility in the workplace, and most refuse extended hours even when the opportunity for advancement arises.
