Gender Equality on the Road to Modernity. France and Sweden in a Long-run Comparative Perspective

Project: Research

Project Details


This project aims to clarify the dynamics behind the long-run development process – through the lens of gender equality – from pre-industrial times until today. We know very little about how much and through what mechanisms gender equality affected the long-term development process. The project will collect demographic, socio-economic, and cultural variables in a regional comparative perspective, whereby we can construct an extensive database. The comparison of France and Sweden will add further contribution in uncovering the origins and dynamics behind the virtuous circle of societal and economic development experienced by Western Europe over the past two hundred years.
