Women in Business in Denmark

Denmark has a higher percentage of women in the workforce than almost any other country and women work in most disciplines and attain high rank within organisations.

The excellence of the provision of day-care facilities, coupled with generous (in comparison with many other countries) maternity and paternity rights make it easier for working couples to combine careers and family life.

Danes have traditionally tended to work their contractual hours (going home at five o’clock) and although this has caused frustration with colleagues in other countries, it has undoubtedly been helpful in advancing full female participation in the workforce.
