Interviewed on Women and Work

During the last Jobless Society Forum (June 13th), the Foundation Feltrinelli has interviewed me on the topic of Women and Work. During the video, I briefly explain the results of the discussion organised during the Third Edition of the Jobless Society in which we focus on the ambivalences of part-time employment and the quality of the work that women can access.

You can access the video on youtube, the interview is in Italian. Women and Work is the topic of my MSCA project VINE – Social Vulnerability and its Intersections.

Vine @Third Jobless Society Forum, Milano

The third edition of the Jobless Society Forum will take place at Fondazione Giangiacomo Feltrinelli in Milano, Wednesday June 13th. I am very honoured to take place as coordinator of the workshop “Women’s Work”, which is going to discuss the role of women in labour markets and the evolution of women’s work in Italy during the last years of crisis. Scope of the workshop will be the identification of the key questions that represents the current shortcoming of women’s integration in labour markets, but also identifying key policies and actions that might allow to cope with increasing destandardization and precarisation of women’s jobs. You can access the recommendation of the table here (available in Italian).
