A research about the “double female presence”: a bet for bring into line working

The objective of this project is to analyze the access and the stay of women in the labor market in Spain from the point of view of the “double female presence”. That is to say, considering that the presence of the women life (productive domain) happens with their presence in the domestic-familiar area (reproductive domain) simultaneously. In that sense, the double female presence supposes a “double commitment cost” for women, that results in theier possibilities of promotion in their professional career; On the other hand, the double female hides a great potential as it supposes the development of new and valuable social capabilities understood as activities management, mediation and so on.
