Genere e scelte formative: le "minoranze di genere”
AbstractThe analysis focuses on the various educational choices linked to gender. In particular, we want to give an answer to the question: what are the characteristics of women who choose a field of study with a strong male predominance and, conversely, what the characteristics of men who choose curricula that have always been the realm of women? The main aim, therefore, is to investigate what are the characteristics of males and females that are "against the tide" with respect to their peers, choosing educational paths with a clear majority of women for the former and predominantly male for the latter. The definition "minority gender" is used to refer to the two groups. After defining curricula as "female" or "male" ones, the analysis focuses on the description of the profile of the "minority gender".
