Formatted Abstract/Summary
The following paper examines the explanatory power of two conceptual frameworks that are frequently invoked in descriptions and analyses of the gendered distribution of paid and unpaid labour: gender contracts and reproductive bargains. The purpose is to assess what kind of conceptual framework can advance analysis of Australian women‘s distinctive patterns of labour force participation, which includes higher rates of part-time employment and post-partum withdrawal than in otherwise comparable OECD countries.
