The Intersections of Economic Insecurity, Non-Standard Employment
and Gender in Southern Europe 

Frontiers in Sociology 

Within this Research Topic, we call for papers that explore the intersections of economic insecurity, non-standard employment and gender. We use the term ‘intersection’ purposively: we specifically welcome research that adopts an intersectional analytical frame to investigate the proposed issues, by looking at what happens to women who are subject to multiple dimensions of disadvantage. As per intersectionality theory, gender, age, social class, ethnicity and other statuses are not only closely tied to each other but also cumulative over the life course. We are particularly interested in research that explores how the co-existence of multiple forms of disadvantage may accumulate and multiply vulnerability to economic insecurity, especially in southern European countries, where exposure to inequality of opportunity is (re)produced through gendered labour market conditions.
