life after housework

A Housework Revolution

Is there life after housework?
A revolutionary approach that will free you from the drudgery of housework
Aslett
1981

I don’t think one can “improve” housework to the extent it can make the drudgery disappear. Taking a task and making it more efficient is a good idea and I am onboard with the concept. As a house cleaning slacker, I am usually disorganized and easily distracted. I just don’t think I can go through the house and get everything done. I think this book assumes you can get organized and not be distracted by other stuff or people.

Smash the Patriarchy in the Kitchen

Working Couple’s Cookbook
Treadwell
1971

This little cookbook is a groovy salute to shared cooking responsibilities. From the back cover you can see that the authors consider this a big step in the women’s lib movement. I don’t think this book will make a serious dent in gendered chores around the house. This book has nothing special as far as recipes go, it’s more about the division of duties in making a meal. Sharing cooking duties is good for your relationship. It’s almost quaint.
