The article adopts the multidimensional approach of «agency-capability gap» (Hobson, 2013) to analyze the working careers of women from their point of view. The analysis is focused on the (non) conversion processes of personal, institutional and cultural resources into effective career results ( functionings). Subject of analysis are 24 life stories of Italian highly educated women. They are «nonstandard » workers, who invested and believed in developing a career, but after having children they have begun to hypothesize the "reverse trend" compared to their initial goals. The article sheds light on the across-the-board constraints along the life course which weaken the capabilities of women.
Keywords: Gender-gap, agency, capability, women’s working careers
