Exploitation of Women in Unwaged Work for the Family
In this reaction paper, I will discuss the exploitation of women in unwaged work for the family as one of the sources of gender inequality. This exploitation mainly comes about because of gender consciousness and stereotypes about race and gender.
Women are considered to naturally possess attributes of caregiving. Unfortunately, they are exploited because their work in the home is not recognized as work, but rather as nurturance and care done for love (Lorber 71). During and after the industrial revolution, this role was cemented as any goods previously made at home were then being mass-produced. Women were therefore expected to stay at home and take care of the children and maintain the home while their husbands worked to bring home the bacon. This domestic labour was unpaid yet expected to be carried out daily.
