ABSTRACT
Portuguese immigration to France has involved both men and women since the 1960s. Whether married or single migrant women have responded to the call for labour in industry and the service sector. Analysis of data from the Mobilité Géographique et Insertion Sociale survey (INED-INSEE, 1992) revealed that a considerable proportion of women born in Portugal migrating as adults and still resident in France in 1992 sought stable employment in France shortly after their arrival in France. In order to study the relationship between women's characteristics and the search for paid work, various types of analysis were conducted. A descriptive variable combined the statuses of women with respect to living with a partner or not al the time of migration and to having at that time one or more children. Each of our analyses showed this indicator to be pertinent in differentiating the women and also in the study of their entry into the labour market during the first year of residence. These analyses are part of a wider exploration of the hypothesis of an active role of women living with a partner at the time of migration in planning the migration. Although the survey does not question women about their opinions, attitudes or values, by situating paid employment or inactivity within the context of female employment in Portugal at the time of these migrations look place, we are led to suppose that wives and mothers had a certain degree of power in negotiating day-to-day decisions. Particularly in relation to their entry into the labour market.
