Female-breadwinner families in Europe

This project, the first of its kind, will provide a broad overview of female-breadwinner families and investigate the social and demographic outcomes this change brings about for women, men and children. The study has three main themes: the emergence of the female-breadwinner model over time and space, the factors behind the emergence of these families, and the implications of this trend. The project hopes to inform UK and international policymakers in the shaping of family, employment and gender-equality policies. It also intends to help the third sector by providing individual charities with the information needed to understand the changing dynamics of relationships, well-being and risk of divorce for modern families. The researchers also believe that it will be relevant for members of the public by increasing awareness of the changing economic role of women in modern families.
