Research project Women’s work affects their demographic behavior and autonomy, but the latter also influences their inclination to involve themselves in family life or relocate. Some scholars argue that women’s employment impedes their engagement in family affairs, whereas others suggest that women’s access to income encourages marriage.
The project analyses nineteenth-century women and their occupations by linking them to their demographic situation in times that witnessed changing gender regimes, urban-industrial change and demographic transition. It explores women’s inclusion in the labor market and public sphere, and whether this entrance was accompanied by a desire for autonomy through work or guided by family circumstances.
