Families in transition : social change, family formation, and kin relationships by Nickie Charles( Book )
17 editions published in 2008 in 3 languages and held by 196 libraries worldwide
This book addresses the complexity of family change. It draws on evidence from two linked studies, one carried out in the 1960s and the other in the early years of the 21st century, to analyse the specific ways in which family lives have changed and how they have been affected by the major structural and cultural changes of the second half of the twentieth century. The book shows that, while there has undeniably been change, there is a surprising degree of continuity in family practices. It casts doubt on claims that families have been subject to a process of dramatic change and provides an alternative account which is based on careful analysis of empirical data
Gender and social justice in Wales ( Book )
8 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 115 libraries worldwide
In 1999, the first elections to a devolved government took place in Wales and resulted in 40 per cent of Assembly Members being women. In 2003, this proportion increased to 50 per cent, which made the National Assembly for Wales the first legislative body in the world to have equal numbers of women and men. This book explores whether this gender balance amongst political representatives is connected with the formation of policies that address gender inequalities and also the impact of these policies on social justice for women in Wales. The first chapter discusses how gender and social justice can be theorized, and provides an account of devolution and its relation to gender politics. Subsequent chapters investigate different aspects of social policy, from gender mainstreaming to domestic violence and language policy, exploring the way different policies have developed since devolution and the extent to which considerations of gender and social justice for women are central to this development. The chapters show that strategic women within the National Assembly have been crucial in taking forward an agenda that furthers social justice for women but that the model of social justice that prevails in Wales is class-based. Superimposed on this is a commitment to gender equality, but this has not yet been integrated into policy development and, even where it is, a language of gender neutrality has been adopted which is compatible with a liberal feminist agenda. The book concludes that there is still some way to go before a gendered notion of social justice is fully integrated into policy formation and implementation
