Abstract: The aim of this empirical study is to conduct a North – South comparison for the EU States concerning the gender equality issue in the workforce, and identify the similarities and differences between Greece and the UK. It is also driven by the wish to provide its readers with a complete picture on the progress of gender equality issue from the middle of the 20th century to today relatively to employment. To achieve this it was deemed necessary to employ various tools, such as the international conventions held by international organizations, legislation of the EU and national legislation from the member States studied. It starts by referring to the studies conducting by scholars of various fields, studies the work accomplished by the international community through various conventions and declarations and concludes by exploring the European legislation from its very beginning until recently. Through this analysis it is evident that the tools required to achieve gender equality in a supranational and national level seem satisfactory and should have led to the accomplishment of gender equality. It goes further with the two case studies for Greece and the UK and apart from the analysis of their national legislation, it employs statistical indicators to create a holistic picture for each of the States. In the discourse part the comparison between Greece and the UK is made reaching to the final conclusions and raising additional questions on the reasons for the persistent character of gender inequality.
