Maternity Policy and the Making of the Norwegian Welfare State, 1880-1940 by Anna M. Peterson
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 229 Pages | ISBN : 3319754807 | 5 MB

This book traces women’s influence on maternity policy in Norway from 1880-1940. Maternity policies, including maternity leave, midwifery services and public assistance for mothers, were some of the first welfare policies enacted in Norway. Feminists, midwives, and working women participated in their creation and helped transform maternity policies from a restriction to a benefit. Situating Norway within the larger European context, the book contributes to discussions of Scandinavian welfare state development and further untangles the relationship between social policy and gender equality.
