Over the last fifty years, women''s employment has increased markedly throughout developed countries. As compared with their mothers and grandmothers, women of younger generations are much more likely to enter the labor market and stay in it after they marry and have children. With an innovative approach, this book makes comparisons between Italy and Great Britain, investigating changes in women''s transitions in and out of paid work across four subsequent birth cohorts, from the time they leave full-time education, up to their 40s. Women In and Out of Paid Work provides a comprehensive discussion of demographic, economic, and sociological accounts. It contains large amounts of information on changes over time in the two countries, both in women''s work histories and in the economic, institutional, and cultural context in which they are embedded.
