This volume presents the findings of a year-long forum held at the European University Institute in 1994-5, which focused on the complex issues arising from the differences in time-use between the sexes at the end of the 20th century. It addresses critical questions such as: how far does gender play a vital role in determining how much time is spent in paid work in the market and how much in unpaid caring work in the home?; as a consequence, who has rights to pensions and benefits?; how much time can either sex devote to leisure or to political activities?; what are the consequences of the distribution of time and how much change can one see in traditional patterns over the past two decades?; and how far have recent economic developments relating to unemployment, part-time or intermittent work and reductions in welfare services had gender-specific consequences contributing to a ""feminization"" of poverty? Among the contributors to this study are demographers, sociologists and social policy experts, philosophers and jurists, each employing different approaches and drawing upon a wide variety of evidence.
