Never Done, A History Of American Housework - 2000 publication

Availability: In stock


2-3 Weeks


Beginning with a description of household chores in the 19th century -- cooking at fireplaces & on cast-iron stoves, laundry done with wash boilers & flatirons, spring housecleaning that had to purge the home of soot & grime, endless water hauling & fire tending -- Strasser demonstrates how industrialization transformed the nature of women s work. Lightening some tasks & eliminating the need for others, new commercial processes altered women s daily lives & relationships -- with each other & with the people they served. Weaves together the history of material advances & domestic service, the development of "women s separate sphere," & the impact of advertising, home economics, & women s entry into the workforce. Illustrations.
