Book Review: Pascall, G (2012) ‘Gender Equality in the Welfare State?’ reviewed by Dr. Theo Gavrielides

By definition, liberal welfare states are structured around democratic institutions that aim to provide means-tested, residual benefits for the poor and at the same time promote free markets. In Britain, the post-World War II welfare state developed rapidly impacting on many policies around the world. But what are the assumptions that guided this model and how are we dealing with these assumptions nowadays? This book aims to answer these questions while also trying to understand the roots of gender difference in states that are proud of their welfare system and provisions.
