Abstract:

This paper examines how gender subordination is transformed through the study of women's participation in wage labor in carpet workshops in rural Turkey. Examination of social relations of work and practices in the workplace reveals that work organization is based on kinship relations, which recreate the age-based hierarchies among women in the workplace, and that men's control over women's labor power is effective in ensuring the high output and earnings in these workshops. Wage work is shown to have contradictory effects on gender subordination, evaluated in terms of women's control over labor power, control over income, and workload. Weavers' perceptions of their condition also support this conclusion. This evaluation reveals that women become active participants in the processes that subordinate them, not only because of religious indoctrination or the threat of physical violence, but also because they perceive immediate advantages to conformity, in terms of improving the conditions of their lives.
