Should we worry about family change? by Jane Lewis( )

16 editions published between 2003 and 2016 in English and held by 1,691 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Should We Worry about Family Change? unpacks the current controversies and larger issues surrounding family change. Some of the topics discussed include the nature of family change, its impact on the lives of women, and the need for amendment to our social policies and laws to reflect today's diverse family patterns. Taking into account the historical development of the family and the social policies that have attempted to meet familial concerns, Jane Lewis comments on such pivotal topics as absent fathers, the increasing economic independence of women, and the effects of the rise of cohabitation." "Lewis explores various policy options that have the potential to promote family well-being and responsibility while expanding the choices available to men and women in regard to their contributions to family life. Drawing on a wide range of literature, cross-national data, and policy approaches, Lewis engages her readers in a highly public and timely debate."--Résumé de l'éditeur

Work-family balance, gender and policy by Jane Lewis( Book )

21 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 338 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Combining paid work with caring for children has become more difficult for families as women's working hours have increased. Over the past decade the issue of work - family balance has reached a more prominent place on the policy agenda of many Western European countries. However the preoccupations of governments have been largely instrumental, focusing particularly on the goal of increasing female employment rates in order to achieve greater competitiveness and economic growth, and also in many countries on raising fertility rates and promoting children's early learning. This important book looks at the three main components of work - family policy packages - childcare services, flexible working patterns and entitlements to leave from work in order to care - across EU15 Member States, with comparative reference to the US. It also provides an in-depth examination of developments in the UK. Variations in national priorities, policy instruments, established policy orientations and the context for policy making in terms of employment patterns, fertility behaviour and attitudes towards work and care are highlighted. Gender inequalities in the division of paid and unpaid work underpin the whole issue of work - family balance. But what constitutes gender equality in this crucial policy field? Jane Lewis argues that in spite of growing political emphasis on the importance of 'choice', a 'real' choice to engage in either or both the socially necessary activities of paid and unpaid work has remained elusive. Work - Family Balance, Gender and Policy is essential reading for students and scholars who wish to understand the complex challenges facing families and family policy and the opportunities for the future."--Publisher's website

10 editions published between 1998 and 2004 in English and held by 260 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During the 1990s lone mothers reached the top of the political agenda, viewed as both a drain on public expenditure and a moral threat. What has been missing from the debate is an understanding of how we have got to where we are. This timely new study, by three leading experts in the field, sets out first to investigate the demographics of lone motherhood - how the pathways into lone motherhood have changed, and whether the changes of the last quarter of a century are as dramatic as they appear. Second, it looks at the wider context for the changes in lone motherhood in terms of ideas about ma
