Guerilla Women

Tennessee Guerilla Women writes:

Once a year Americans celebrate their independence from government tyranny with parades, apple pie, the beach, and family get-togethers. We don't think too much about personal independence - being free from various minityrannies in our own lives, be they personal or vocational. But this year the holiday will be celebrated against the backdrop of a raging debate in the elitist press over women embracing paid jobs and declaring their independence from housework.

Historic times. We are seeing women transitioning from owning the house to owning the work. Soon men will be displaced from the workplace and become househusbands. How do women do it? This is what I want to understand. Can the process be accelerated? Can it be slowed down or reversed? Is it inevitable?
