1 Outline Gendered division of labour Part 2 For Social Science 1185 from L. Wiggins GENDERED DIVISION OF LABOUR – CONTEMPORY Post War patterns • Shift in clerical work from male to female workers; continued occupational segregation based on gender • Improved work conditions for all workers • Rise in average age of women workers, more married women and women with small children o Rising real wages made waged work attractive o Increase in education for women & decrease in fulfilment level found in housework; impact of Women’s Movement, other social movements o Necessary to maintain real income of families • Drop in relative importance of women’s factory work, rise in importance of service work • Rise of corporate capitalism & capital-intensive technology • Higher wages for workers; still have gender wage gap • Increased unionization • Women’s double day of waged & unwaged work 2. Factors affecting gendered division of labour • The structure of capitalism & role of economy • Reserve labour of women phenomenon • Structure of the labour market & organization of certain groups of workers into competitive & service sector OR the monopoly/state sectors • Relationships between domestic labour & wage labour - women are disadvantaged 2 because of double day tasks so double commitments • Legislation re workplace, benefits, pensions, etc. • Lack of availability of daycare & other structural level support for women’s lived experiences • Ideology about women's place vs. men’s place - a number of influential myths about gender, family & waged work. Myth: an unproven collective belief that is accepted uncritically (so isn’t problematized) and often used to justify a social institution and social organization; mobilizes common sense ideas that are often part of the dominant ideology; often relies on claims of being ‘natural’ and ‘normal’. Influential myths: Identify important myths about women and work, both in the family and waged. Use examples from The life and times of Rosie the Riveter as well as your own observations. Can you challenge these myths? 1. ____________________________ 2. ____________________________ 3. ____________________________ 4. ____________________________ 5. ____________________________ 6. ____________________________ 7. ____________________
