selected tag: gendered
Housework is traditionally associated with women, as historically they have served men in the household. Many societies still view domestic work as “women’s work.” When women get jobs outside the home, rather than men taking over, other women are brought in. For this Bilderkritik we identify the tag “gendered” as an imposition resulting from social education influenced by inherited religious morals that see the family as the perfect tool for domination and control. All contributions in this category refer to multiple family structures, post-gendered identities, and crossed roles in the household. Theatrical strategies appear as ways to subvert and play with imposed roles. But how do we connect this subversion to the very real facts of gendered labor? Let’s start by strategically supporting each other, asking questions, playing, subverting resiliently, working together, and finding affinities.
