This chapter focuses on well-being gender budgets that apply Sen and Nussbaum’s capabilities approach to gender auditing. The questions that it seeks to answer concern methodological issues and the implications of using this method with reference to its implementation at different government levels in Italy. Its application, together with the recognition of the central dimension of unpaid work in the construction of well-being and its unequal distribution by gender, suggests the need for devising public policies able to tackle the gender inequalities produced within the family caused by an unequal distribution of total work (in quantitative and qualitative terms) that can give rise to an unequal development of capabilities.
