This chapter reviews the main arguments of this research and suggests future policy directions. The stubborn survival of vertical occupational sex segregation (VOSS) has prompted a range of explanations. It is only possible to identify VOSS as the manifestation of injustice when its causes are confirmed as the result of malpractice or unreasonably restricted opportunities. It has shown that many institutional and policy-based restrictions on lifestyle options available to individuals are based on stereotypical assumptions about the capabilities of each sex, irrespective of normative and practical ambitions.

Keywords:   VOSS, injustice, lifestyle options, sex, policy
