    It is one of the ideological state apparatus?

    That might not be right, a better one to use would be David Cooper. Cooper argues the housewife role provides unpaid labour, helping the capitalist system.

    So...

    Zaretsky
    Engels
    Benston
    Ansley
    Cooper

    Possibly Althusser

    Got any for Functionalism other than Parsons and Murdock?
    David and Moore were important in defining functionalism

    What was Benston's theorem?
    By supporting their man in their jobs, by doing the things like cooking and cleaning that they would not have time to do if they were at work they are helping capitalism. To pay women for everything they do would cost an awful lot of money and employers would have to pay men a huge wage. In her role as the housewife the woman attends to her husbands needs, thus keeping him in good running order to perform his role as a wage labourer.


    A working man's responsibility to keep a wife and a family mean that he is a slave to his job - he can be exploited as much as he wants by capitalism but he has no choice but to stay. Therefore the pressure of financial responsibility of a family on one person rather than two allows the exploitative nature of capitalism to continue.

    Critique - conducted in 1972, most households now dual-career, armchair theories - purely theoretical.

    I have 97 names for families and households, 5 names (even for a single unit) is no where near enough..

    also I hope demography comes up tomorrow, I don't mind ****ing up and getting a C or B at AS. If it comes up tomorrow, it won't at A2 = ideal situation

    I had 99 for education, hah. It's probably overkill, but I reckon I have a good memory and it's pretty much the only revision I did.

    Yea I use Quizlet

    It's a fun way to revise anyway, much nicer than writing notes over and over

    Oh, yeah my bad, I still think 5 is low for an essay though. I usually aim for more than 10, particularly since evaluation names are usually single short sentences.
