The research program builds on the environmental labour market from the gender point of view, to ask whether and how the development of the green economy, and related green jobs and green skills, can represent an opportunity to increase female employment. If you stop at the obvious response that the already low female employment is still lower in most environmental sectors and professions that deal with environment, you do two wrong things; the first consists in considering as given and unchangeable, a situation of sex-typing work and training that has produced and continues to produce occupational segregation, both horizontal and vertical. The second wrong thing is based on the stereotype that green economy and subsequent occupation will relate mainly to the exercise of purely technical skills.
