Abstract

Además de objetivos de creación de empleo y estímulo de la actividad económica, el fomento del autoempleo está siendo utilizado desde la Política de Empleo como instrumento para mejorar la inserción laboral de las mujeres, en la medida, entre otros argumentos, permita evitar las situaciones de desigualdad laboral que tradicionalmente enfrenta este colectivo dentro del empleo asalariado. De acuerdo con esta idea, el objetivo de la investigación es verificar las posibilidades que el autoempleo puede tener como medida de Política de Empleo para la mujer. Para ello, y tras analizar la evolución del autoempleo femenino así como de las características que definen al colectivo, el articulo determinará si realmente, y en qué medida, el trabajo por cuenta propia modifica la desigual posición laboral que habitualmente detenta la mujer en el mercado de trabajo remunerado. Además del análisis estático, el estudio también considera la perspectiva longitudinal (transiciones laborales), con el objetivo de averiguar en qué medida el autoempleo se constituye en una vía para la integración laboral estable de la mujer en el mercado de trabajo.
