Le travail des femmes en France et en Russie : l’effet des enfants et des valeurs de genre
Revue d’études comparatives Est-Ouest, 2009
URL, DOI, JabRef BibTex, Abstract
How do children and gender attitudes affect women’s labor force participation in Russia and France, two countries with different welfare states and different conceptions of gender roles? The determinants of women’s participation in the labor force are compared by using data from the flrst wave of the Generations and Gender Surveys conducted in both countries. In Russia, the age of the youngest child is the key factor explaining the decrease in women’s labor force participation rate. In France, the effect of having children is multidimensional; and gender values, unlike in Russia, have a major impact. The broader range of possibilities for Frenchwomen (work full- or part-time, or not at all) accounts for the greater variety in their labor patterns.
