Abstract

The French parental leave (allocation parental d??duction, APE) has a negative impact on mothers? employment. Despite this, the government has extended it in 2004. Unskilled women are encouraged to withdrawn from the labour market. After this period some of them have no guarantee of finding a job. The 3 December of 2003, the OFCE has organised a conference in order to debate on this point. Comparing the French system with other (Swedish, Dutch...), the discussion between experts indicates that, as far as women will be in charge of family and domestic tasks, the parental leave is a major key to conciliate family and professional live. It is the core of several economic and social problems: female employment, gender equality, share of social time well-being of children.
