1) Briefly summarize the following chapter: Gender, Patriarchy and Trade Unions, pages 190-236. This question should be at least a page long. The chapter is titled Gender, Patriarchy and Trade Unions. The chapter starts off by introducing the problems of gender inequality, in which work “both paid and unpaid forms of work have consistently exhibited patterns of inequality.” (190) After the introduction it moves onto theoretical viewpoints on women and work, in which it explains the invisibility of a gender within class. Walby’s theory is described in seven points (191) The next section explores Gender as secondary or derived subordination. One theoretical solution the problems posed by a family-based analysis. The next two sections are Patriarchally and Symbiotically derived subordination. Patriarchally derived subordination is stemmed from the traditional value system of power. Symbiotically derived subordination derives from capitalism exploitation of some women economically. The next piece of the chapter goes into Women and paid labor. This part goes into the number of women that were working before World War II and after. After WWII there was a dramatic increase in the number of women in the workforce. The chapter goes into equal pay and the difference in pay between men and women.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
