Unemployed young women cannot struggle equally for open positions in the labour market. On the one side, unemployed young woman seeks a job through the criteria determined in a way that it shall not constitute any challenge for the dominance of men, capital and state. On the other side, by his/her hiring and firing practices, employers reproduces both these criteria and state’s, men’s and capital’s interests consequent of these. Considering young woman and employer, as the sole parts of this unequal bargain or struggle will generate inadequate picture in examining the reasons of young women’s unemployment. State with its new right applications and regulations, labour market with its neoliberal operation ensuing from the process since 1980s, family by mechanisms provided by patriarchal system are a party to and identifiers of this bargaining process. Young women’s unemployment is the consequence of the reflection of the patriarchal capitalist articulation mechanisms among family, state and labour market in macro level on the bargain between young women and employer in micro level.
