Abstract

This book is a ground-breaking retheorization of what constitutes "progress in gender relations." It shows that French women, although having more full-time and continuous careers and greater social policy support, retain as great a responsibility for unpaid domestic and caring work as their British counterparts. It replaces the conventional focus upon encouraging women's increased insertion into employment as the principal strategy for achieving progress in gender relation with a new focus on changing men's work patterns.
