Difficulties of family care-work reconciliation represent an impediment to development of linear career paths in Italy. This phenomenon is particularly relevant for the women considering that the household and family tasks are still performed largely by them, leading to increase in gender gap in career paths. In the latest childcare policies, the diffusion of the so-called voucher babysitting to purchase babysitting and childcare services can represent a different and likely more effective way of reducing the gender gap. Adopting a mixed methods approach, the paper aims at studying the impact of this policy measure on the career paths of the women workers who have acquired the parental role, in particular when their employment is temporary and precarious.
Keywords: Voucher, family care policy, work-family reconciliation, mixed methods, content analysis
