WIEGO Child Care Initiative Literature Review
Alfers, Laura.
April, 2015

This resource reviews literature on the topic of women, work and child care provision with a focus on the following areas:

  • to provide a review of the main conceptual issues which have underpinned child care as a policy issue;
  • to collect the available empirical evidence which links women’s earnings to child care;
  • to analyse the place of women’s employment within dominant discourses around care policy, and conversely, to analyse the place of child care in relation to women’s economic empowerment discourses; and finally
  • to highlight positive policy practices in relation to child care provision from around the globe.
