The paper analyses the transformations in the social regulation of work through an examination of female employment and changes in the role of women in 271 industrial society. The processes of change have weakened the equilibrium of the Fordist regime founded on the breadwinner role, on a gendered division of labour, and on women’s responsibility for providing care services within the family. Thus the increase of women’s employment is not an effect of change, as are higher rates of unemployment and the spread of ‘atypical’ work, but is rather the key to redesigning a new equilibrium of social relations. The paper outlines a few European examples of change and then focuses on two specific cases of women’s employment in northern and southern Italy. Through this analysis we begin to shed light on the regulating tensions typical of the current phase of work transformation in industrial society.
