First Edition

Designing a new architecture for social protection, the book shows that it is urgent and possible to rebuild the system. A plea for the design of a new generation of social rights, by three specialists in family policies, employment, social protection! Read More

The French social protection system has helped to consolidate social cohesion, to fight against poverty and to attenuate the devastating effects of the current economic crisis. However, as this system is based on the model of a male head of household with a dependent wife and children, it reinforces gender inequalities and overlooks — and at times penalises — career development.

Outlining a new architecture of social protection, this book shows that it is both urgent and possible to restructure this system. The system's metamorphosis must be based on the requirements of gender equality, assistance for diversified careers and upstream social investments in favour of children and youths, in order to guarantee the right to a high quality personal and professional life for everyone.

This second generation of social rights would combine social protection and promotion for all women and men in order to build a society of equals.
