The evolving of women's part time work

11. March 2019

When married women started partaking in the job market during the 70’s, part time work was a mainstream adaptive choice. Since then both the understanding and the rhetoric of part time work have changed.  Today it is commonly viewed as a barrier to full gender equality. This evolvement of ideas, studied in the light of cultural and institutional changes, is the main topic in an article written by Anne Lise Ellingsæter og Ragnhild Steen Jensen.
