We explore the link between educational attainment, measured by grades obtained, and professional success, measured by access to employment. We question the combination of ethnic and gender effects in New Caledonia. The academic success of Kanak women exceeds that of men; however, their slow, recent and still weak positions on labor market reveal that the gap with Kanak men is slowly closing. It appears that the combination of several factors of discrimination does not necessarily lead to a strict addition of penalties.
- gender based division of labour
- racial discrimination
- sexual division of training
