Bringing together the most recent empirical data available, it examines the impact of the welfare state on womens and mens roles and power relations, and on their access to resources. Casting a critical eye over feminist and comparative literature on the welfare state, Daly and Rake elaborate a new theoretical framework for understanding how gender relations are shaped by national welfare states. They argue that the welfare state reaches deep into peoples lives and that its effect is to be seen in the relative resources and power relations of women and men.

The book traces the relationship between national welfare state configurations and care needs and care provision, the division between paid and unpaid work, the conditions of womens and mens participation in the labour market and gender differentials in access to the resources of money and time. Written in an accessible style, Gender and the Welfare State brings together wide-ranging information from the major European Union countries as well as from the USA, providing the reader with essential reference material.

It will be welcomed by all those interested in gender, social policies and the comparative study of welfare states.
