Longitudinal aspirations of young women
Understanding young women’s aspirations for future work and family, how their aspirations change over time and whether they achieve these aspirations, is important for understanding how women negotiate work and family during early adult life. Through quantitative analysis of 5 waves of data on young women’s work and family aspirations, and qualitative analysis of young women’s comments surrounding their aspirations, work and family, we investigate the extent to which women’s life choices are freely and individually chosen as opposed to embedded in complex sociocultural contexts.
