Example text

Morris reviews UK studies in this area and draws four conclusions: employed women continue to bear the main burden of domestic work; men’s increased participation does not offset women’s increased market work; women in part-time employment fare worst, partly because they have young children; men may increase their domestic involvement when there are young children, but not enough to make up for the increased hours needed at this stage (Morris 1990:90). One area of change is clearly detectable. The British Social Attitudes Surveys have traced changing attitudes to childcare and household tasks (Witherspoon and Prior 1991; Kiernan 1992).

Scandinavian welfare states support parenthood in a more systematic way, with systems of child care and parental leave that give mothers better access to the labour market. Autonomy is the counterpart to dependence. Orloff’s framework for welfare states includes the ‘capacity to form and maintain an autonomous household’, and access to paid employment (Orloff 1993), and these are in the same territory. To what extent do social policies entrench dependence or enhance autonomy for carers— mothers in relationships, mothers alone, carers of older kin, women in violent relationships?

Women’s part in Labour policy making is greater than ever before, but not enough to bring gender issues to the forefront of the contemporary politics of social policy. Chapter 2 Family, work and state INTRODUCTION This chapter argues that family, work and state are key arenas for understanding women’s position in social policy: their role in welfare state structures as nurses, teachers, social workers; the impact of social policies on women; the constraints within which they make choices about relationships, work, health, housing; and the gendered nature of the welfare state.
