Women's pay and family income

Susan Harkness, Stephen Machin and Jane Waldfogel

The assumption that families are headed and supported by a single 'male breadwinner' has led to women’s earnings being regarded as unimportant for family welfare and only weakly linked to income inequality no longer holds true.

Changes in family structures and patterns of male/female employment require a reappraisal of the relationship between male and female earnings, and family welfare and income inequality.
