(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL #240 - Chores: Women should not do housework men (fr, pt) [machine translation]

Date Tue, 15 Jul 2014 12:02:28 +0300

Women still tap all the domestic work, this is normal, this is the basis of patriarchy. Comes to lament lament that working men and women to tap all the work in the factories. ---- A chapter of the 2012 edition of Perspectives on gender INSEE concerns the division of household tasks between men and women. It analyzes the changing times through the survey figures of 1986, 1999 and 2010. ---- Time spent on housework and errands happened to women 4:10 to 3:01 and the men of 1 hour 10 to 1 hour 17. To care for children, women's participation increased from 42 minutes 45 minutes while the men ridiculously doubled from 10 minutes to 19 minutes. Women do the domestic work of the whole family, they are doing their part and on the part of job men (they do when they are single).

Which lowers the participation of women, this is not a more egalitarian distribution but the development of the use of substitutes for merchants female tasks (dishes ...) and a household with greater activity rates increasing women (micro-ondes. ..).

Changes ... but not equal

For more affluent women, it is also the use of a maid (but in these cases, the man is nothing, the semblance of equality is ensured by the use of domesticity). The configuration is different depending on the composition of households. There are more children, the distribution is more unequal. More women work, the less it is.

A survey for a shoe brand in early 2014 peak that nearly half of women are normal to do more but 68% believe do more.

The consequence of this unequal distribution is that women have less time for anything but domestic life. They work fewer hours, they have less free time. There has also an impact on the associative and political investment on recreation and creation.

The figures show that at the current rate of convergence times devoted to household activities, equality will be achieved ... in a long time, or more likely never. Ever because unequal division of labor is the basis of patriarchy. The group of men is enhanced domestic work of women (since they do not have to do or to pay) and will not voluntarily change this fact.

It is for women (like all operated es) to terminate their operation by ceasing to do household chores men. Easier said than done.

The fight between the couple is exhausting and source of conflict. Lower wages reduce the margin trading. The part-time due to the unequal distribution maintain it. It is easier to do than fight constantly.

It remains to give a collective dimension, a dimension of class to this necessary fight.
