Women and Domestic Labour - Domestic labour consists of labour for physical as well as emotional maintenance, childbirth, cleaning, cooking etc. This labour in turn results in the reproduction of labour power. Women, in almost all societies are responsible and obligated to do this labour.

So according to this conceptual framework, family under capitalism is a site of social production. In contemporary Indian these activities performed in the domestic sphere as well as the informal sector because of their distance from the realm of exchange and market, are not recognised and remain undervalued....   [tags: childbirth, cleaning, cooking ] 538 words

The Changing Role of Women in Automobile Advertisements - Side-by-side are two advertisements, each showing a picture of a car and two family members. The ads demonstrate the amount of power allotted to women in the times they were made. The differences in these ads far outweigh the similarities. The ad –from a 1954 Good Housekeeping –shows a woman being reprimanded by her husband for wrecking their car. The other–from a 2003 Redbook–shows a wife and mother holding her daughter with one hand and an umbrella with the other. One woman is ignorant, irresponsible, incapable, and not in control; the other is competent, responsible, and in control....   [tags: Compare and Contrast, Advertising, Ads] 1430 words

The Eventual Success of Women's Suffrage Rhetoric - The Eventual Success of Women's Suffrage Rhetoric In One Half the People and Women and the American Experience, we learn that women were outraged upon finding that the 15th amendment constitutionally enfranchised men of every race and ethnicity, but still excluded women. According to Susan B. Anthony, one-time president of the National Woman’s Suffrage Association, this occurrence brought women “to the lowest depths of political degradation” (Woloch 329). Women quickly realized that the governing body of white men would more quickly give freedom to uneducated and poor foreigners than to their own mothers and wives, whom were steadily beginning to make financial...   [tags: Papers] 1283 words

How Would the World be Different if the Ancient Greeks had Decided Not to Colonize? - Early in the first millennium B.C.E., ancient Greece was reduced to ruins by bloodthirsty migrants who destroyed the educated class. Most of those who were fortunate enough to survive the devastation did so by goat farming (Fernandez-Armesto, 2011, p. 110). In order to escape their increasingly oppressive environment, the Greeks began to travel and explore far away from their homeland, colonizing areas along their routes and engaging in trade with other civilizations. As they continued to venture farther, they erected permanent dwellings, fabricated ornate shrines and created artistic masterpieces, some of which are still standing today....   [tags: Ancient Greece, Colonization]
