The content of this publication is a selection of papers presented at the Third European Conference on Gender Equality in Higher Education held in Genoa in 2003, of which professor Maione was honoured to be the organisation chair.
This collection includes the essays of the participants who spontaneously agreed to let their contributions be published.
We believe that the reader will appreciate the scientific value of these contributions which show the different backgrounds and ways of working of the areas their authors come from, thus showing that the standards of high quality which we were aiming at when we organised the conference were reached in full.
We also hope that this publication may start a real debate on gender equality issues which probably lacked during the conference.

Valeria Maione is professor of Labour Economics and Statistics at the University of Genoa. She is also head of the Equal Opportunity Committee of the Region Liguria and was former head of the CPO (Committee for Equal Opportunities) of the University of Genoa. Valeria Maione has written essays on women issues in the labour market, among which: The female labour market in Italy from an historical perspective, in "Women in Management", 15-2002; Utilmente meravigliose. Donne manager all'Università, Bozzi Editore, Genova, 2001; Lavori che facilitano la doppia presenza: le albergatrici, FrancoAngeli, Milano, 2002; Lavoro DOC - Qualità del lavoro, qualità della vita, FrancoAngeli, 2004.
