Nancy Folbre’s essay explores how women can become family caregivers and pursue similar occupations. It is clear that women who are not typical males spend more time looking after their children than ordinary ones. These women are more likely to be involved in caring for the elderly. A spouse who demonstrates empathy and other abilities is more likely to be chosen by men. Women are generally more focused on their families than men, and are therefore more likely to accept work-related breaks in order to help with childbearing or household responsibilities. No matter what reason it is, taking time off during recessions can impact your career and future income. Lower income individuals are more likely than others to offer more care for family members. This specialization is contributing to the increase in gender disparity.
This article examines why there is gender discrimination between men and women. Although care work and the social structures that allow women to be caregivers in their family may seem ethically and socially acceptable it can often provide women with very low financial returns and professional opportunities. The ability of women to fight for equality is diminished by specialization in caring.
Gender disparities can be analyzed using specialization. The development of gender discrimination can be attributed to biological differences between men, women, and children. This article discusses how important it is for women to care for their family and pursue caring-related career paths. Companies that have workers who provide care to patients or customers typically pay less than those in other industries. It is not clear if the lower pay for care workers is due to more women specializing in this profession than men.

Kalpazidou et al. Kalpazidou et al. cite a reason for the gender imbalance in this scientific field. This review examines the causes of persistent gender inequality in science leadership positions. Underrepresentation is a problem that policies have been designed to tackle are affected by the abstracting of tactics and lack of evidence about how they impact on the subject. Gender discrimination has been a persistent problem in science professions, preventing women from achieving managerial or decision-making positions. Although female science students are now in a more advanced position than male academics, the gender inequality is still much greater than that of male academics. It is not true that women will “catch up to” their male colleagues over time.
