In my presentation I wish to challenge and discuss the standard depictions of Denmark (and indeed the other Nordic countries) as dominated by a dual breadwinner model. Instead I suggest, based on my Ph.D.- study on the female-dominated professions in the period 1985-2010, that a lot of Danish households and family ideals are actually based on a “one-and-a-half” provider model.
