This new edition of a classic feminist book explains how one of thegreat historical revolutions - the ongoing movement toward equalitybetween the sexes - has come about. Its origins are to found, not inchanging ideas, but in the economic developments that have made women'slabor too valuable to be spent exclusively in domestic pursuits. Therevolution is unfinished; new arrangements are needed to fightstill-prevalent discrimination in the workplace, to achieve a more justsharing of housework and child care between women and men, and, with the weakening of marriage, to re-erect a firm economicbasis for the raising of children. In this new edition, Bergmann provides an update on women's economic situation today and ultimately proves her argument is as relevant and essential today as it was when this book was first published this book in 1986.
