Description:
This article examines the 'gender restructuring of welfare' in the Republic of Ireland (hereafter Ireland). It is based on empirical research into the historical development of social welfare in Ireland applying the 'male breadwinner' model developed by Lewis (1992) and Lewis and Ostner (1994). Under their proposed typology of welfare regimes, I reland is characterised as a 'strong' variant, in which women's status as citizens has historically been and continues to be resolutely mediated by their family status as homemakers (as wives, mothers and daughters). Pauline Conroy Jackson (1993) showed that a central theme in Irish social policy has been and continues to be to 'manage the mothers', and that this is key to understanding the structure of social welfare. This paper takes up and develops a number of the ideas contained within her paper.
