Critical transitions: The production of gender (in-)equality in the life course

Critical transitions: The production of gender (in-)equality in the life course

This e-book is dedicated to new findings on the (re)production of (in-)equality in the life courses of men and women in contemporary Western societies in the case of Switzerland. It refers to the Na-tional Research Program 60 on ‘Gender Equality’ (2010-2014) launched by the Swiss National Science Foundation that aimed at generating knowledge on the complex conditions for gender equality in the Swiss context. The five contributions to the present volume cover a considerable array of the above-sketched issues within the context of federalist Switzerland, which is particularly diverse with respect to sociopolitical differences on its subnational level of cantons.
