SUMMARY

Over the course of a two hundred year period, women's domestic labor gradually lost its footing as a recognized aspect of economic life in America. The image of the colonial "goodwife," valued for her contribution to household prosperity, had been replaced by the image of a "dependent" and a"non-producer." This book is a history of housework in the United States prior to the Civil War. More particularly, it is a history of women's unpaid domestic labor in the context of the emergence of an industrialized society in the northern United States. Boydston argues that just as acapitalist economic order had first to teach that wages were the measure of a man's worth, it had at the same time, implicitly or explicitly, to teach that those who did not draw wages were dependent and not essential to the "real economy." Developing a striking account of the gender and laborsystems that characterized industrializing America, Boydston explains how this effected the devaluation of women's unpaid labor.Boydston, Jeanne is the author of 'Home and Work Housework, Wages, and the Ideology of Labor in the Early Republic', published 1994 under ISBN 9780195085617 and ISBN 0195085612.
