International Feminism

ndifrank's picture

If I was to write about an aspect of international feminism, I would want to write about women in the work force internationally. I was really intrigued by the chart that Warring had created that mapped the various jobs and amount of leisure time men and women had compared to each other. I would be interested in understanding how other countries are supporting working women and if non captialist countries consider taking care of the household and children productive. Warring really made feel that being a feminist means that I should be anti capitalist but I don't know what economic system would be the better alternative. My main question would be where and how are women supported in society for their work as mothers and/or work outside of the home.
