Resource summary

COUPLES
1 DIVISION OF LABOUR
1.1 Functionalism: Parsons (1955) instrumental and expressive role, biologically base, functional for the family, its members and wider society
1.2 March of progress: Bott (1957) - segregated and joint conjugal roles
1.3 Young & Willmott (1950s) WC, extended families in Bethnal Green, (1973) trend towards symmetrical family
1.4 Feminism: Oakley (1974) housewife role is 'socially construct'
2 IMPACT OF PAID WORK
2.1 Dual burden - housework and paid work Duncombe and Marsden (1995): triple shift - emotion work also.
2.2 Commercialisation of housework - schor (1993) - death of the housewife role
2.3 Gershuny: lagged adaptation Sullivan (2000)
2.4 Gender scripts: Dunne (1999) 37 lesbian couples - more equal. Heterosexuals: socialised into gender scripts. Homosexuals: did not link household tasks to gender
3 RESOURCES AND DECISION MAKING
3.1 Kempson (1994) women in low income families denied own needs to make ends meet. Resources shared unequally
3.2 Pahl & Vogler (1993): allowance system, pooling. Volger (1994): increase in pooling.
3.3 Edgell (1980): important decisions made by men because they earn more
4 DOMESTIC VIOLENCE
4.1 sociologists: DV too widespread to be the behaviour of only a disturbed few.
4.2 6.6 million assault per year - mainly men against women. 1 in 4 women are assaulted at some time (BCS)
4.3 Problems with statistics: Under-reporting and Under-recording. Yearnshire (1997) - women on average suffer 35 assaults before reporting to the police
4.4 Russell & Dobash (1979) violence was triggered when men felt that their authority was being challenged.
4.5 Radical feminists: men oppress women through family. Men also dominate the state = why courts & police fail to take DV seriously
4.6 Mirrlees-Black - other groups at risk of DV: Young people, WC, rented accommodation, high alcohol + drug consumption
4.7 Elliot (1996) - not all men are aggressive
