Maid to Order – Ehrenreich

Leave a comment

Women are still being treated as if they are only good for two things. Sex and house work (including raising children). This article talks about how so many women are in the industry of housekeeping. When you think of a maid what do you most often think of? All tv shows and most hotels have women as maids. Have we really underdeveloped this much. We are in the year 2011. Even with the great strides that previous and current feminists are making, here women are. Still stuck in the stereotype of cleaners. The fact that women are hiring other women specifically to clean after them also saddens me. This is something I would expect from a man, not another female. Maybe one day women will rise above this. That is my hope anyway.
