Abstract [en]

The earner–carer model is a welfare state approach based on the ideological, gender‐egalitarian premise that men and women are equally involved in both paid labor and unpaid care work. Different welfare state policy structures divide into those that support either women's paid work within the labor market or the traditional division of male breadwinner/female homemaker. Hence, policy measures produce different incentives for families to divide up paid work and unpaid care work. During the 1990s, many feminists studying welfare state issues criticized the overlooked gendered aspects, and stressed the importance of including unpaid care work and all socially constructed properties in the analysis. Throughout the twentieth century, the traditional male breadwinner/female full‐time homemaker ideal of family life was dominant in the Western welfare states, but during the second half of the century it became less pronounced, along with women's increased participation in the labor market.
