Participation rates in labor force and employment, by sex [click on the image to enlarge].

Following up on our previous post, this from the Hellenic Statistical Authority, which notes:

One of the main features of the period 1981-2015 is the growing participation of women in the labour market and the resulting increase in their participation in employment. In contrast, the participation for men has been decreasing, thus resulting in a continuous shrinkage of the differences between them. In this regard, men were more severely affected by the economic crisis, as during the period 2009-2015 the employment rate of men fell by 13% compared to 6% of women.
