The invisible, unpaid work that women do...

"Discussions are also under way about the recognition and communalisation of the work of reproduction - that is, the invisible, unpaid work that women do for the family, in the household. 'We want that all 'invisible' work be socialised, beginning with housework,' the economist Azize Aslan has said.

'Why should women use washing machines at home? Why shouldn't there be a laundry for the village or the district? Why should there be no kindergarten or common kitchens? ...These are some of the ways the patriarchal, gendered separation of 'men's and women's work' can be discarded.'"
