Les femmes prennent le volant : Diffusion du permis et usage de l’automobile auprès des femmes au cours du xxe siècle

Abstract : Women take the wheelWhereas the generalization of automobile became a sociological field in the 1970s, analyses remained blind to gender differentiations. However, at that date, women were widely kept aside from this massification. Yet, women’s appropriation of the automobile has been ambivalent, questioning the meaning of converging mobility practices among men and women. If the automobile has often been thought of as a means of emancipation, it can also prolongate gendered roles within the household. Just as household goods can intensify domestic work instead of diminishing it, automobile can turn into a new domestic task. We will try to address that question by analyzing the driver’s licence generalization and the specificities of automobile use among women using data stemming from insee transportation surveys between 1980 and 2008.
