This article attempts to present a snapshot of the Cypriot labour force between 1974 and the early 1990s. It also aims to show that despite differences between Cyprus and the EU regarding women's issues, Cyprus seems to have made certain 'advancements' in this field though suffering shortcomings particularly with respect to occupational segregation. The article also stresses that whilst Greek Cypriots challenge a rather traditional society as regards rights and status, they are at the same time actively involved in the struggle against the illegal occupation of part of the island since 1974.
