Gender and work during the childhood and adolescence of gender research in Denmark

Karen Valeur Sjørup

This essay considers how the overall trends in feminist theory and gender political practice have affected research on gender in employment in Denmark through the last 30 years, from a predominantly Marxist to a predominantly social constructionist approach. The changes in the research have both refl ected the tremendous changes in women’s ties to the labour market, and the political and mindset changes that have occurred in society.
The research has developed from being a part of the feminist political agenda into a more secluded academic practice, a process which has also matured gender research as a fi eld of science.
