Abstract [en]

The aim of this paper is to, from a theoretical perspective, analyze the possible effects of a shared parental leave reform on women’s labor market participation and the income equality between men and women. The theory of Household Allocation, the Identity Model and the Signaling Theory are used to evaluate the theoretical base behind such a reform. The result shows that in case of a decrease of the social cost for fathers to use their parental leave, such a reform would induce both women’s labor force participation and the income equality. If the social cost is not reduced, such a reform would probably result in a higher labor force participation of women but the income inequality would remain.
