Acquisition des droits sociaux et égalité entre les femmes et les hommes

In France, social rights can be either derived rights, obtained through the marriage, or direct rights given by employment. According to the growth of divorces, the first one should be revised. Concerning the second one, as women are less integrated on the labour market than men, they gain less social rights. For example, the pensions received by women are inferior to the men?s one. Women are still in charge of the domestic tasks so that they interrupt their careers, or reduce their working time. It is difficult to compensate the family burden without confine them within their traditional role. A lot of actions can be implemented in order to encourage a fairer share of domestic work between women and men.
