Some 60% of Dutch women now work
Some 60% of Dutch women had a job of 12 hours a week or more last year, compared with 53% 10 years ago, according to new figures from the national statistics office CBS.
One in three women work between 20 and 35 hours a week, up from one in four 10 years ago. Around 18% of women work over 35 hours a week, a figure which has remained stable over the past 10 years.
Almost half of the women with a part-time job say they have chosen to work less because of household and family commitments.
