The financial dependency of women and their disproportionate share of unpaid work infect social protection systems, rendering them discriminatory. Thus they are less successful in providing income security to women than to men. Despite a commitment to equality, European Court of Justice case law reveals a mixed result. The gender basis of social protection systems and the effects of women's more fragile employment histories are not being effectively countered by that attempt to enforce legal equality. Applying several definitions of equality the author identifies discriminatory practices and then examines options, including individualization and caregiving credits, for making progress.
