Our paper analyses persistence and change of gender inequalities in relation to gender segregation of educational and vocational pathways of young adults in Switzerland. We explore the mechanisms at work in the gendering of educational pathways. We find that young adults with untypical gender pathways have higher than average scholastic abilities and beneficial family backgrounds. However, our data shows that women and men do not profit equally from their gender-untypical pathways. Furthermore, we argue that family plans play a key role for explaining the gendering of educational pathways for both young men and young women.
