Collective immunity to emancipation policy

Collective immunity to emancipation policy

Through qualitative research it will be identified how part-time working mothers are related to the current emancipation debate. Increase in employment participation as a policy goal, has become dominant in the emancipation policy of the Cabinet in recent years. That women with children now largely work part-time does not ensure the economic independence, which the Cabinet and feminists had in mind. Research from Portegijs and Keuzekamp (2008) has shown that women follow their personal beliefs regarding the performance of the childcare role. That stimulating Cabinet measures are not heard by part-time working women, is a sign that the emancipation policy does not adequately meet the needs of women themselves. Economic motives count limited for the choice of women to provide care. Idealistic motives are decisive. The importance of a proper development of children is their first concern.
