The international research project "Work Changes Gender" examined ongoing shifts in male working environments in Europe, their interrelations with changing male self-assessment, and evolving opportunities for gender equality. Detailed studies on these issues were conducted in five European countries (Austria, Bulgaria, Germany, Norway, and Spain) and Israel, set at the national, corporate, and individual worker levels. The interview survey gives evidence to the fact that masculinity is distinguished by differentiation and differing requirements. But a culture of work based on traditional models of masculinity and a policy of inadequate tax laws and paternal leave regulations still promote the breadwinner model and prevent gender equality. The field of gender policy still seems to be basically restricted to women. This second edition explains the ongoing changes in detail, showing how men deal with them, and gives recommendations on how to achieve gender equality by including a perspective on men.
