Abstract

The sharing of caring activities between men and women as an instrument for achieving gender equality is the result of a long debate within the studies on welfare systems in a gender perspective. Some authors have called for a «dual earner-dual carer» model, a form of «gender arrangement» requiring both partners working three-quarter of the time and equally sharing care. The article is divided into four parts. The first part explores the theoretical foundations of the notion of «shared conciliation» and more in particular of the «dual- earner-dual carer» model. The second part is a review of the comparative literature on work-life balance policies. The third part will analyze the OECD data 2014 on time use. The fourth part aims to shed light on the limits of the «dual earner - dual carer model» and proposes a new interpretation of the notion of shared conciliation.
