The articles collated in this text explore: how social policy constructs gendered relations; the difference/equailty debate; representations and discourses in social policy; the tensions and issues associated with restructuring domestic relations; and feminist alternatives to mainstream social policy solutions. The book adopts a comparative and international perspective taking on board the importance of global changes as well as illustrating its argument with practices and research from a number of countries. Overall, the text raises issues for students, academics and practitioners dealing with social policy issues in the late-20th century.
