Linking Vulnerability to Poverty and Domestic Labor
A Case Study in Turkey
Fall 2007By Hande Togrul
This paper emphasizes the invisible groups, mostly women, who are embedded deeply in the socio-economic and politico-cultural infrastructure. Their invisibility, i.e. acceptance of status by other groups of women, perpetuates inequalities. This study explores domestic labor relations between women of different classes. It argues for the emancipation of all domestic laborers as well as all other working-class men and women and advocates "wages of the housework" as a perspective in shifting debates in gender and class relations.
