This new edition reflects extensive social changes in women's participation at work, educational achievement and security in marriage. It also reflects policy changes aimed at producing a mixed economy of welfare, increasing family responsibility in health, community care, housing, education and income security. It examines the changing pattern of welfare provision, with increasing reliance on women's unpaid work, the gendered nature of UK welfare structures, the continuing dependence of women on men's incomes and on welfare benefits, the public-private divide, women's non-citizenship as carers for young and old, and the changing political climate of the 1980s and 1990s.
