Gender and Welfare State Regimes

Julia S. O'Connor

Oxford University Press

Examines strategies related to pay and employment equity in four countries representing the liberal welfare state regime: Australia, Canada, the UK, and the USA. After outlining the strategies pursued since the 1960s, the discussion shifts to their outcomes in terms of gender inequalities regarding occupational segregation and wage differentials. The concluding section discusses political and institutional explanations of the cross‐national differences between the countries, especially the importance of parties and industrial relations frameworks.

Keywords:   Australia, Canada, equal pay, industrial relations, occupational segregation, political parties, UK, USA, wage differentials, welfare state
