Item description for How Welfare States Care: Culture, Gender and Parenting in Europe (Amsterdam University Press - Changing Welfare States Series) by Monique Kremer...
Though women's employment patterns in Europe have been changing drastically over several decades, the repercussions of this social revolution are just beginning to garner serious attention. Many scholars have presumed that diversity and change in women's employment is based on the structures of welfare states and women's responses to economic incentives and disincentives to join the workforce; How Welfare States Care provides in-depth analysis of women's employment and childcare patterns, taxation, social security, and maternity leave provisions in order to show this logic does not hold. Combining economic, sociological, and psychological insights, Kremer demonstrates that care is embedded in welfare states and that European women are motivated by culturally and morally-shaped ideals of care that are embedded in welfare states---and less by economic reality.
