To assess whether basic income (BI) can address the multiple causes of gender inequalities the author reviews debates about choices of care and the concept of dependency. She evaluates complementary policies that encourage a combination of care and employment. It is not empirically clear what type of gender equality BI would result in, and whether advocates are expecting too much from one policy tool.
