Abstract

We present a model in which the social norms regarding women's labor force participation (LFP) differ from the norms concerning men's. Assuming that these norms depend on past rates of women LFP creates a gradual increase in women LFP.

Keywords: Women's labor force participation, Tradition, Social norms
