Document Summary

Page 1: work is defined as activities that produce goods or services usually for one"s own use or for the exchange of pay or support. Three types of work: forced, paid and unpaid. Unpaid work is also known as non-market work which people perform for themselves or others. Page 2: important form of non-market work is domestic work- work that people do for themselves or members of their household. Distinction between market and non-market work is a by-product of industrialization. When you define work as paid production you leave out much of the unpaid work people do in developing countries as well as domestic work by men and women in their households. Page 3: sex differentiation is the classification of people into categories based on sex. This begins at birth when each baby is assigned either male or female. This system is essential for a system of inequality. Distinguishing between males and females is necessary for treating them differently.
