Inside the household : from labour to care

edited by Susan Himmelweit

In the 1960s and 70s feminist accounts of gender divisions within the household were primarily about the use of time. 'Housework' was discovered as a form of women's labour that enabled some members of households to take part in paid employment by restricting the opportunities of others to do so. In the 1990s there has been renewed interest in gender relations within households, but this time focusing more on the care that is given, still largely by women, to members of their household. Reflecting increasing diversity, the household is no longer seen only as a site of labour but, perhaps more importantly, as the place where a specific sort of activity, caring, takes place. The essays in Inside the Household range from classics from the 1970s to some specifically commissioned for this collection. Together they provide an account of how the shift from labour to care occurred in feminist analysis, by examining the way that earlier debates influenced modern analyses, as well as introducing the reader to some of the latest thinking on the nature of women's caring labour.
