Janet Chaftez theorized about gender and particularly about the Marxian feminist Theory. This is essentially when patriarchy and capitalism work together to keep the oppression of women, while protecting the privilege of men. Oppression is continued through the control of women’s labor, because once more women are contributing to the labor force, the weaker the oppression becomes. A prime example of controlling women’s labor is the outdated social stigma that women should not go outside of the house for work and that she should be a house wife who’s only purpose in life is to serve her husband, cook, clean and watch the kids. This social stigma does several things, like perpetuating the oppression of women under men, and helping men maintain their power and privilege by the women being dependent on them to survive. Yet, if women were not to follow this social stigma and go outside the house to work, like many have started doing over the past fifty years, then the oppression of women would have to go down because they are gaining economic capital and don’t have to rely on men anymore. This of course does not mean that men and women are equal in any regards to pay or power positions, or even in the misogynistic minds of socialized patriarchal men, but it is a step in the right direction. Over time, hopefully, women will begin to be seen, as equals to men and the labor market will be fully diverse with men and women in all positions with equivalent pay. At least one could dream!
