Description - Women, Work and the Family in Europe by Eileen Drew
This book provides a new and timely analysis of major changes in society within the extended European Union, by addressing the consequences of altered family forms, the restructuring of labour markets and the conflicting demands of family and working life. As well as providing an up-to-date survey of many of the current areas of debate across Europe, Women, Work and the Family in Europe also reviews new developments and initiatives being made in an attempt to reconcile men and women's roles in the family and at work. Chapter headings range from 'Changing Family Forms and the Allocation of Caring' to 'Part-time Working in a European Perspective'. By bringing together many of the leading experts in social policy across Europe, subjects as diverse as Greek family policy, gender roles in Sweden and care of elderly are covered. Contributions set out the major demographic and labour market trends which are critical in understanding the sexual division of labour, occurring in relation to both paid work in the labour market and unpaid work at home.
Clearly written and arranged under general headings as well as individual chapters, Women, Work and the Family in Europe will appeal to students as well as researchers and professionals and will be an essential addition to the material available to students of cultural studies, women's studies and social policy.
