Gender redistributive policies

Gender redistributive policies
Gender redistributive policies
Gender redistributive policies seek to achieve gender equality and address the causes and consequences of a gendered division of labor. Three strategies can be distinguished: first, strategies seeking to provide formally equal access and to remove barriers and discrimination; second, strategies acknowledging the gendered division of labor and addressing the consequences of unpaid care work; and, third, strategies anticipating the gendered impact of policies. Parental leave and day care policies address the double burden of employed parents and seek to ease the reconciliation of employment and unpaid care work. Familialistic and de-familializing welfare states can be distinguished. Various types of familialism regulate gender relations. Tax and pension systems also have gender redistributive effects. Gender mainstreaming and gender assessment seeks to anticipate and prevent the potentially unequal impact of policies on men and women.

Abstract

Gender redistributive policies seek to achieve gender equality and address the causes and consequences of a gendered division of labor. Three strategies can be distinguished: first, strategies seeking to provide formally equal access and to remove barriers and discrimination; second, strategies acknowledging the gendered division of labor and addressing the consequences of unpaid care work; and, third, strategies anticipating the gendered impact of policies. Parental leave and day care policies address the double burden of employed parents and seek to ease the reconciliation of employment and unpaid care work. Familialistic and de-familializing welfare states can be distinguished. Various types of familialism regulate gender relations. Tax and pension systems also have gender redistributive effects. Gender mainstreaming and gender assessment seeks to anticipate and prevent the potentially unequal impact of policies on men and women.
