Famous quotes containing the word housework:

    For women the wage gap sets up an infuriating Catch-22 situation. They do the housework because they earn less, and they earn less because they do the housework.
    Sylvia Ann Hewitt (20th century)

    You all know that even when women have full rights, they still remain fatally downtrodden because all housework is left to them. In most cases housework is the most unproductive, the most barbarous and the most arduous work a woman can do. It is exceptionally petty and does not include anything that would in any way promote the development of the woman.
    Vladimir Ilyich Lenin (1870–1924)

    I think housework is the reason most women go to the office.
    Heloise Cruse (20th century)
