This chapter examines the impact of ‘women-friendly’ policies — funding or provision of childcare, paid maternity/home care leaves, public employment, promotion of part-time work, tax systems that do not penalize a second earner in a household, and antidiscrimination and affirmative action policies — on women's employment. It also considers the relationship between female employment levels and household income inequality.
