This Special Collection of Demographic Research – edited by Trude Lappegård, Frances Goldscheider and Eva Bernhardt – “brings together new knowledge about the tight linkage between two halves of the gender revolution; i.e. women’s increase in labor market participation and men’s greater engagement in the private sphere. The collection illuminates the history and determinants of the changes in gendered labor force participation as well as their consequences for how couples organize their economic and family lives. There is a gap between equal sharing of economic and domestic responsibilities in most countries. Cross-national analyses demonstrate that structural differences – arising from public policies and economic forces that shape couples’ choices – are of greater importance than ideological differences. In addition, the collection shows the importance of employing a wide range of lenses through which to study such a massive phenomenon, including detailed case studies and multi-level comparative studies.”
