"Genere e scelte formative”
AbstractThe article aims at investigating university educational choices in terms of gender. In most industrialized countries girls and boys have made very different choices giving rise to strong segregation, often reflected in worse positions in the labor market. After a brief review of explanations behind the choice of university faculty based on gender differences, the article aims to evaluate one of the factors that strongly influence the choices, the levels and educational outcomes of individuals, namely the family background.
