An analysis of women's unpaid role in the home. Written from a feminist perspective, "Housewife" aims to challenge the set of conventional values which label work a masculine activity and assign women to the home in the role of wife, mother and housekeeper. Oakley traces the historical development of the housewife role, explores the influence of industrialization and examines the situation of women today. Her analysis is illustrated with four case histories.
