Innovative Social Policies for Gender Equality at Work
Fox, E and Pascall, G and Warren, T (2006) Innovative Social Policies for Gender Equality at Work. Project Report. School of Sociology and Social Policy, University of Nottingham [online], Nottingham.
The project asked about policies to support work-family reconciliation among low-waged women in England. How are low-waged women constrained in their choices by limited and fragmentary social policies? We identified innovative social policies available in the international arena around parental leave, child-care, and time that could promote work-family reconciliation, more continuous employment and better quality jobs among low-waged women in England. Would these policies be attractive and better meet their needs in reconciling paid work and family?
