This chapter takes up the story of how the study and conceptualization of the relationship between gender and the welfare state proceeded from the 1990s. It shows the picture to be one of both continuing interest in some of the older issues as well as significant new trends and conceptual orientations. Four main lines of analysis are offered: elaborations of the underlying system; conceptions of processes and end states; the emergence and growth of the concept of care; and the growing interest in gender as one of a number of intersecting inequalities.
