Description
Wed. Nov. 13 Chapter 8 – CAGE(s), Families, and Domestic Labour, and the Processes of  Reproduction (pg. 139 – 174) Introduction ­ 1998 and 1999 worked on a project that involved collecting life­history interviews  with 60 low­income mothers  ▯examined the extent to which mothers’ family  responsibilities influenced their poverty  • Using life history analyses, they found that the processes through which women  became mothers influences their experiences of poverty  o Mothers faced barriers in continuing their education and in securing  gainful employment  o One of the most significant barriers was finding suitable and affordable  child care but there were also ideological barriers  • Beginning in early childhood, beliefs about motherhood and family are instilled in  us  o For some of the study participants, these beliefs acted as barriers to  education and employment  One mother  ▯ girls were raised to think they had to grow up and  get married and the only way to be independent was to be married   Another mother  ▯wasn’t getting a lot of support or encouragement  at home; was told by her parents that it wasn’t as important for her  to succeed as it was for her brothers o The ^above ideological beliefs about families is best summarized like:  “you’re so wrapped up in what you want but you’re going to get married  and going to have kids, so there’s no sense even getting a goal like that,  just do well in school and get yourself a job”  • Such
