The treatment of women under the social security systems in many countries is often predicated upon
the assumption that the family is composed of a male breadwinner and a female homemaker who relies
upon the protection deriving from her husband’s entitlement to social security benefits arising from his
employment. This traditional model of social security generally penalizes women workers who move
into part-time employment after maternity or who take leave or a break from their career due to their
family responsibilities. The Committee of Experts has noted that social security systems should take into
account the many different situations faced by men and women workers in order to guarantee men and
women equal protection and equal rights. 69 The Convention provides that, with a view to creating
effective equality of opportunity and treatment, governments should take all measures compatible with
national conditions and possibilities to take account of the needs of workers with family responsibilities
in the area of social security.
