Gender Equality : Transforming Family Divisions of Labor Hardback
Part of the Real Utopias Project series
The age of the male breadwinner and the female caregiver has passed, but gender inequality is as persistent as ever.
This major new work intervenes in today's debates on domestic inequality, examining tensions between work and family life for women. "Gender Inequality" explores class disparity, who should care for infants, and fatherhood in a dual-earner family.
Surveying the design of public institutions that could significantly mitigate these pressures, contributors including Nancy Folbre, Janet Gornick, and Marcia Meyers offer useful, thought-provoking prescriptions for real change.
