The Production and Consumption of Long-Term Care: Does Gender Matter?
AbstractThe question as to whether or not 'gender matters' in the issue of the delivery of care may seem a very odd one, given the enormous literature that has developed within a number of social science disciplines that takes gender relations as the primary perspective in the analysis of care. However, this paper will argue that, certainly in the British literature, the emphasis on gender has recently been diluted and altered such that the gendered perspective on care has tended to disappear.
