In order to help women employees balance work and family demands,many countries in Europe have implemented family-friendly policies.Denmark prioritizes early education and childcare,Britain emphasizes family allowance and tax benefits,Germany grants lengthy parental leave,and Italy provides free pre-school education for children aged three to six years.In terms of policy effects,early education and childcare play more influential roles than the others in promoting female employment and improving women's social status.There are some differences in the focus and policy effects of family-friendly policies in the four countries,but supporting women is the fundamental common feature of all the policies,as well as an effort to promote gender mainstreaming.
