Abstract

Despite various changes since the establishment of the post-war welfare state, Jenny Chanfreau argues that UK social policies have maintained an unequal gender regime. Current policies continue to gender ‘the worker’ and ‘the parent’ much like William Beveridge’s explicitly gendered male breadwinner/ female carer model did.
