Children, Families and Women in the Israeli State: 1880s–2008

Mimi Ajzenstadt

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Traditional welfare state theories focused on male workers and class conflict pay little attention to the relationship between women, children, and families and the welfare state. Criticizing these works, feminist scholars applied a gendered lens to these relations (Fraser, 1994; Gordon, 1990; Sainsbury, 1999). These scholars focused on the interplay between unpaid care work tied to the family/private sphere and paid care work associated with the public sphere of the labor market.
