L'école, premier vecteur de la ségrégation professionnelle ?

Abstract : While both women labor participation and education level have increased dramatically over the last fifty years, occupational sex segregation and at school have not decreased at a proportional rate. The paper explores the part played by school in the reproduction of sex segregation on the labor market. The increase of girls’ level of education did reduce the vertical form of segregation, but the gender socialization taking place within school itself perpetuates its horizontal form, fostering the gap between masculine and feminine subjects. Moreover, young people do anticipate the segregation prevailing on the labor market, as well as the current way family operates, which generates specific limitations upon young girls’ choices. All in all, the specific role of school, versus theses realistic anticipations seems more limited than currently assumed.
