This chapter looks at how family members care for each other and the impact of employment, particularly women's employment, on their ability to do so. It examines how people care for children, older people, and those who are unable to care for themselves, whether temporarily, due to illness, or on a more permanent basis. It also discusses how the connectedness of kin networks varies and how this relates to class and patterns of women's and men's employment.
