Research of intergenerational mobility on Japanese females has not been exploited compared with research on males. In this paper, gender comparison was performed by examining whether opportunity disparities of origin-destination association in social mobility and these temporal changes according to calendar year are different between males and females, employing the modified EGP classification which covers the categories of non-regular employment and no-job. By hypothetical arguments, it is expected that disparity of origin-destination association of females is smaller than that of males and the three kinds of changes, constancy, expansion and reduction in disparity among females can be derived as predictions, though constant disparity among males has been reported by most past studies. The result of analysis utilizing career history data of 2005 SSM Survey in Japan showed that disparity of females was smaller than that of males as expected, particularly at more than 38 years old and at the maximum disparities, and that changes of immobility among females along with calendar year did not support any hypothetical prediction, though no significant change was confirmed among males.
