Formatted abstract
This project deals with alternative work schedules as a means of enabling equal employment opportunity for Australian women.

The present position of women both in reference to workforce participation and social norms is discussed. Public policies aimed at equal employment opportunity, the impetus for these policies and their effectiveness are considered.

The hypothesis is put that as long as work is considered in terms of a rigid, continuous, lifetime occupation, it is very difficult for women to achieve equality. Various alternative work arrangements are considered as a means by which women can balance home and work demands.

The study concludes that alternative work arrangements must be flexible, allow reduced hours at work at various life stages, and be available to all sections of the workforce for equal employment opportunity to result.
