Les représentations des métiers par les jeunes : entre résistances et avancées

Abstract : Representation of professions among youngsters : from resistance to progress. On the basis of a survey of 1149 pupils, this article sheds light on their representations of professions. Diverse world visions are expressed according to individual characteristics of these youngsters. A vast majority of female high school students, especially those in scientific and industrial fields, tend to have a non-gendered approach to professions, whereas boys' gendered stereotypes resist and persist. Youngsters' writings also reveal how much women's and men's traditional roles persist. "Maternity, softness and understanding" are the words associated to women's professions, whereas "strength, resistance and courage" characterize men's trades.
