There is considerable concern among scholars and in the society at large that a re-traditionalization of gender roles will occur in the wake of the Corona crisis, undoing most of what has been achieved and taken for granted in the last decades in the direction of less gender inequality. Mainly using extant data, the project will identify variables that influence a possible retraditionalization of gender roles. From this, policy measures will be derived that are suitable to bolster the feasibility of combining work and family roles against the effects of the crisis.
