Gender and Welfare State Regimes

By: Sainsbury, Diane (ed.).
Material type: materialTypeLabelBookSeries: Gender and Politics. Publisher: Oxford, Clarendon Press, 1999Description: 293 pages.ISBN: 978-0-19-829416-0.Subject(s): gender relations | labor market policy | social expenditure | gender studies | social science | gender policy | welfare state | taxation | women | gender relationsSummary: Gender and Welfare State Regimes focuses on how social provision, taxation, and labour market policies structure and transform gender relations in several advanced industrial democracies. A central question is whether gender policy regimes coincide or cut across welfare state regimes. The first chapters examine the construction of gender in policies of countries representing the same welfare state regime—the conservative, liberal and social democratic regimes—while the subsequent chapters compare policies across welfare state regimes. The book argues that policy variations across the countries are shaped by differing strategies and demands of women's movements, the organizational strength of labour and industrial relations frameworks, and the constellations of parties supporting equality measures, policy legacies, and state structures.
