Women and Work in Italy: the Risk of Discouragement. With a Southern Italian Case Study.
Keywords:women, job, discouragement
The difficult relationship between women and work in Italy appears disconcerting at national level and becomes really alarming at Southern Italy ones. We have chosen here to consider a particular phenomenon which, in Italy, is especially referred to women: «discouragement». This is the condition of some women who, after having looked for a job for long time and uselessly, at the end, decide to give up looking for it. Going beyond quantitative data, we have made also a empiric survey on one hundred of unemployed women to investigate discouragement process in a Southern Italy region.
