The Effects of Skill Regimes and Family Policies on the Gender Employment Gap. By: Kang, Ji Young. Social Politics: International Studies in Gender, State & Society. Summer2021, Vol. 28 Issue 2, p359-384. 26p.

Drawing on the literature of gendering varieties of capitalism, this study empirically tests whether skill regimes moderate the association between family policy and the gender employment gap. Using the Luxembourg Income Study for fifteen countries with multilevel analysis and various gender employment indicators, this study finds that general skill regimes are associated with a smaller gender employment gap in full-time jobs, high-skilled jobs, and in the private sector. The effects of parental leave vary significantly by skill regimes, suggesting that patterns of gender employment gap associated with parental leave differ by types of skill regimes.
