Gender inequalities in care and consequences for the labour market
The year 2020 marks the 25th anniversary of the Beijing Platform for Action (BPfA), the leading roadmap for gender equality in all spheres of public and private life.
Many of the challenges identified in the BPfA in 1995 remain relevant today, including the gender pay gap and women’s disproportionate burden of unpaid care.
This report focuses on BPfA Area F, ‘Women and the economy’, and explores the ways in which gender inequalities in pay are linked to gender inequalities in care in Europe. The analysis aims to contribute to important policy discussions on the gender pay gap and gender care gap.
