Example text

Chapter 5 presents material on how abortion rights are secured, provided and understood, situating this legal right of personhood in the context of social rights to health care. 42 STATES, MARKETS, FAMILIES Our focus is on carefully delineating the features of policy in each area, utilising elements of the analytic frameworks we have described above in order to accurately capture the states' gendered effects. Although we have been guided by a common framework in analysing the policy areas, we allow the specificities of each policy area to shape each discussion.

Lewis contrasts France, Sweden, Britain and Ireland, finding Britain and Ireland strongly committed to the breadwinner form, France less strongly so, and Sweden only weakly so, with support instead going to dual-earner households; Germany is also categorised as a strong breadwinner regime (Ostner and Lewis 1995). Thus, Lewis's approach underlines the fact that dimensions of variability based on gender relations do not correlate neatly with class-related dimensions (see also Shaver and Bradshawl993).

Rights may also be effective in subverting familial dependencies - not those that are the result of a need to be cared for because of age or disability, which Kittay (1997) and Fineman (1995) termed 'inevitable dependency', but those resulting from the economic dependence, or 'derived dependence', that so often accompanies caregiving. Welfare benefits, provision of services, and employment regulations affect the capacity to form and maintain an autonomous household, a dimension which indicates an individual's ability to survive and support their children without being forced to marry or enter into other family relationships (Orloff 1993b).
