En este documento realizamos un análisis descriptivo de la evolución de la participación femenina encomparación con la masculina en el mercado laboral uruguayo entre 1986 y 2000. El análisis descriptivo sobre las tendencias de la participación realizado, de acuerdo a las variables relacionadas con el ciclo familiar tanto para los hombres como para las mujeres, nos sugiere que en el Uruguay se ha venido dando un proceso de similitud del comportamiento de actividad de hombres y mujeres. Según lo observado, el ciclo de vida familiar pierde importancia en la incorporación de las mujeres al mercado laboral, especialmente entre las más educadas.
