The Wages for Housework Movement | Feminism In India


That the unfair burden of domestic work falls on women in India is a fact that no one can deny. Unpaid domestic work includes tasks such as cooking, cleaning, childcare, etc. Due to the highly gendered society we live in that are dictated by patriarchal norms, women end up performing a chunk of care work. According to a recent report in 2019 - on an average, women spend nearly 299 minutes a day on unpaid domestic work versus 97 minutes spent by men. The push to recognise womens’ domestic labour as something worthy of reparation has been going on for decades now. In this Feminist Archive Video, we take a look at the Wages for Housework movement.
