Gilman believed that the domestic environment oppressed women. Gilman was a believer in the theory of reform Darwinism. Gilman argued that there should be no difference in the clothes little boys and girls should be allowed to wear, the toys which they play with etc. Gilman claimed that society creates restraints and gender roles starting from early childhood. Wages against housework by Silvia Federici is a piece that I found not only interesting but also supports Gilman’s theory and critique on gender inequality. Silvia Federici states how we live in a capitalistic society. Whatever work that it is we do, we receive wages for it. However in this text, Federici claims that women are expected to do housework, which is no less than any other job, but receive no wages for it. There is a notion that women are obligated to perform the necessary housework without any wages. Our society has come a long way in regards to gender inequality. Women assume some of the highest positions in our society such as but not limited to, finance, business, hospitality, entertainment etc. Today we see more and more of Gilman’s theory on gender equality being applied in both the workplace and the household.
