The article examines the impact of labor market reorganizations on women in the Quebec province of Canada. An overview of an employment model (modèle de la centrifugation de l’emploi vers les marchés périphériques (coeur-périphérie) proposed by sociologist Jean-Pierre Durant is presented. Based on results from the Institut de la statistique de Québec (ISQ), the authors claim that dynamic centrifuge employment leads to the hierarchical reorganization of labor markets based on gender. It is suggested that women are more confined to atypical work conditions such as part-time work with lower wages and restrained employment benefits. Also examined is the relationship between atypical work development and the precarious work conditions of women.
