THE IMPACTS OF WOMEN'S CAREERS ON THEIR COMMUTING BEHAVIOR: A CASE STUDY OF ISRAELI COMPUTER PROFESSIONALS

This study focuses on the relationship between women's willingness to extend their commuting trips in exchange for career gains. Career gains were defined in broad terms, to encompass whatever the individual woman viewed as desirable improvement in her work situation. Three categories of variables were examined: career factors, family factors, and commute factors. The sample consisted of 162 women working in computer-related professions, in the Tel-Aviv metropolitan area. The majority of respondents expressed willingness to extend their journey to work for a career improvement. Commute duration and distance were the major determinants of such willingness: the longer the present commute, the more reluctant were women to further lengthen it.
