Abstract [en]

There was a clear division of labour between men and women in the past. Men were active in public sphere, while women cared about households, husbands and children in private sphere. How it is organized nowadays when usually both parents are in need to be employed? Unfortunately, women in general have not been liberated from their previous role in private sphere yet, which leads to reproduction of gender stereotypes and gender inequality in society. This monograph examines a need of employees with young children for balancing work and family life and employer's ability to satisfy these needs as well as a role a state as a guarantor of welfare and provider of public policies. Current situation, on the background of current social policies in Sweden, in one concrete organization - Arbetsförmedlingen (employment office) in Falun is researched here.
