about this item

Drawing on comparative research from the United Kingdom, Sweden, Denmark, Iceland, Germany, and the Netherlands, this book provides an accessible analysis of what gender equality means across countries, what the implications of this meaning are for childcare and long-term care policies, and how other nations’ best practices can be adapted in any nation. It provides realistic and feasible policy solutions for a variety of issues, from what role individuals, families, communities, the market, and the state can play, to what difficulties might need to be overcome in different policy contexts. The first book to collect international best practices in childcare and long-term care, it discusses not only what works in achieving gender equality, but why.
