This chapter emphasizes the socio-economic, social policy and individual level influences seen on the production and reproduction of gender divisions in care work in the last few decades in Slovenia. To overcome the gender-biased impacts, possibilities for re-conceptualisation of caring and the parenting/family employment relationship are examined. There are two main objectives for increasing the public provision of childcare. It is shown that pluralisation of childcare forms is yet to be achieved in Slovenia and that some mothers would like to care at home for the children during their first years of life. It can be concluded that long-term public policies enhancing women's labour market participation have limited but positive effects, during the drastic economic and social changes the majority of women succeeded in obtaining their labour market positions.
