Les ressources de la proximité : Capital d’autochtonie et engagements locaux des jeunes femmes d’origine populaire et rurale

Abstract : This article mobilises the concept of “indigenous capital” to highlight the forms of support and types of resources on which young women of popular and rural origin rely in their access to adulthood. Indigenous capital will enable these young women to compensate for the absence or weakness of the cultural and/or economic capital necessary for professional integration or access to property. Local resources appear to be conditions for reconciling the various social imperatives that weigh on young women, particularly the norms of employment and motherhood. They do this by bridging the gap between academic qualifications and positions held, or by offering young women margins of freedom and resistance to domestic assignment within the couple or to hierarchical relationships in employment. However, while making it possible to compensate for the absence or weakness of central capital in access to certain markets (employment, real estate, marriage, etc.), indigenous capital does not fully balance this deficit.
