THE STORY OF A MARRIAGE: DOMESTIC TECHNOLOGY AND WOMEN

Ufuk SERDAROĞLU, Nurcan ÖZKAPLAN, Gamze YÜCESAN ÖZDEMİR.


Abstract

In this paper, our main concern is to investigate the marriage of women and domestic technology in Turkey by a sensitive look at their homes,bathrooms and kitchens. We explored the following themes in our story: Is this marriage 'labour- saving or enslaving'? What are the effects of this marriage on the sexual division of labour at home? Do the women's age, economic, social and class status, etc. have decisive roles in this marriage? And how do cultural context, values and attitudes define this marriage? These themes only highlighted one side of the coin (the visible). We attempted to make the other side (the invisible) visible by the deconstruction of the observer (we) and of the observed (others).
