Abstract:

"Based on extensive fieldwork, this book explores the intimate, material and sensory spaces of the home to uncover how gender roles are performed within our personal private worlds. Pink shows how everyday items ranging from perfumes to soap powder imprint and reinforce daily experience and a sense of identity. How has the home been affected by the fact that more and more women now got to work and increasingly more men spend time engaged in domestic tasks? How do more traditional family-centred homes compare with those belonging to diverse family forms and people living alone? What does a study of domestic gender tell us about how change occurs?"--Jacket.
