Summary: Never Done is the first history of American housework. Beginning with a description of household chores in the nineteenth century -- cooking at fireplaces and on cast-iron stoves, laundry done with wash boilers and flatirons, spring house-cleaning that had to purge the home of a winter's worth of soot and grime, endless water hauling and fire tending -- Susan Strasser demonstrates how industrialization transformed the nature of women's work. Lightening some tasks and ...show more eliminating the need for others, new commercial processes inexorably altered women's daily lives and relationships -- with each other and with the people they served.
In this lively and authoritative book, Strasser weaves together the history of material advances and domestic service, the development of "women's separate sphere," and the impact of advertising, home economics, and women's entry into the workforce. Hailed as pathbreaking when originally published, Never Done remains an eye-opening examination of daily life in the American past. ...show less
