This chapter describes the impact of European Union membership on gender equality. It also argues that the tension at the heart of the European Union – between a European social model based on social solidarity and social cohesion and an economic model based on liberal markets – is at the heart of the transition process and the way that it will impact on women in the new Central and Eastern European (CEE) member states and on gender relations in households and in public. In addition, the implications of accession for gender models in CEE countries in terms of key aspects of gender regimes are evaluated: paid work, care work, and time and voice. The historic record of the European Union in each dimension is examined, as well as the implications for gender equality in CEE countries as they join the European Union.

Keywords:   gender equality, European Union, European social model, social solidarity, social cohesion, paid work, care work, time, voice
