Well-being and Social Development in the Context of Gender Equality: Working paper no 1.4, “Gender Equality and Quality of Life - State of Art Report"

Zofia Lapniewska

Research output: Working paper

Abstract

This study concentrates on three major fields listed in its title: notion of well-being, understanding of social development and striving for gender equality. Due to complexity and diversity of approaches all of them are shown in lights of different theories, which to some extent I try to reflect in this paper. Additionally, to meet the goal of “Gender equality and quality of life” project,
that is a construction of a new indicator, I summarise existing indexes on well-being and gender and juxtapose them in tables. This operation enables the readers to have a clear picture of focus areas and development trends of these measures, followed by the message they send. Critical reflection on the presented models and the final discussion might help in the future work on
quality of life and gender equality issues, their measurement and interpretations.
