Identity of women white collar workers in Tunisia : work representations, social and gender relations in the professional and family environment
This thesis presents the results of a research about the professional representations and practices of Executive Tunisian Women. This research is focusing on a key question: How those women build their personal identity within the social and professional environment? This thesis also aims at exploring the various interpretative paths of the executive professional roles differentiation by analysing the family and professional trajectories of both men and women in the private and public sector. The qualitative survey run over the sample of 60 women and 20 men through mainly semi-directed interviews, highlight the successful educational and social integration of graduated and active executive women, and demonstrate that their careers evolve in an unequal way in comparison to their male counterparts.
