Woman, Wife & Working Mother - Role of Women in the Family

The Family Research Network (FRN) was launched in 2008. The tenth forum, held on 5 November 2013, had presentations which examine how gender roles and work-life practices affect the division of unpaid work in the household and how work-family balance policies can shape the family formation decisions of working women. It also looked at some comparative research on aspects of the family that affects a woman’s ability to be successful and how the family supports the working woman.
