Cluster 3: Family and Private Household

The traditional breadwinner model seems to be a thing of the past, but the main responsibility for care of children and others needing care still falls to women, and even young couples are choosing traditional models of division of labour. In addition, violence has not been wiped out of the domestic setting. The decline in the birth rate, the increasing divorce rate, and a variety of new ways of life and types of households point to far-reaching changes in private life and are linked to new gender equality policy challenges
