> Although women have always worked, a large number of professions and positions of power have long been forbidden to them. After an overview of the conditions of women's work in nineteenth-century France, this course will focus on the transformations brought about by industrialization and the rise in the level of education. It will then address the resistance and obstacles to the development of women's work in the first half of the 20th century. It will conclude with a reflection on the new challenges of professional equality from the end of the 20th century to the present day. The course will focus on case studies and individual stories to show these women at work.
