  • Industrialisation led to the seperation of paid work from the home
    • Women gradually became excluded from industrial labour force
      • Women became confined to the home with sole responsibility for housework and childcare
        • Made women subordinate to men and economically depend on them
          • The 'house-wife' role is socially constructed, rather than being a natural role like Parsons claims
            • 20th Century-women working and housewife still remains. Low paid jobs similar to housewife.
