Along with being nurturers, Gilman argues that women are also required to be educators. Gilman believes that others can assist with these tasks or even do them more effectively. Gilman was one of the first to propose the professionalization of housework, encouraging women to hire housekeepers and cooks to release them from housework. Gilman envisioned kitchenless houses and designed cooperative kitchens in city apartment buildings which would further help women balance work and family and provide some social support for wives who were still homebound.
This would allow women to participate in the workforce and lead a more worldly life. Gilman believed that women could desire home and family life, but should not have to retain complete responsibility of these areas.
Conservative reviewers even respected the book, albeit slightly grudgingly. Not all reviews were as positive though. Many of the reforms proposed by Gilman, such as professionalization of child raising and housework, were considered radical at the time of her writing.
Gilman states in the book that she opposes corporal punishment, believing instead that parents should explain their reasoning to their children. Gilman also advised having an open discussion about sex despite her uneasiness regarding the subject and her near denouncement of sexual pleasures in general. Scholars have pointed out that Gilman drew upon several different sources to create her synthesis.
She borrowed the concept that the realm of production is central to human life and that the workplace is the area of both oppression and liberation from Karl Marx , while applying it to gender, rather than solely class. From Charles Darwin , she used the theory of evolution, and ultimately Social Darwinism , that permeates much of the book. The E-mail Address es you entered is are not in a valid format.
