Sample text

Imagine the total labor force as a pie. The total pie is divided into two parts, the portion of the labor force that is male and the portion that is female. 1 depicts the changing labor force composition, the percentage of the labor force that is male and female, from 1900 to 2000. 3 percent was women. 5 Change in these proportions was slow until the 1940s. Thus, paid work was largely a male domain, with pockets of employment for women. The composition of the labor force began to change after World War II, with women representing a steadily growing proportion of the labor force.

For white women, their share in private household employment began falling in the 1940s; for black women, it was a decade later. Black women began to shift out of private household work and into clerical, sales, and service work in the 1950s, but even more rapidly in the 1960s and 1970s (see also Power and Rosenberg 1995). White women also moved into these same job categories at a swift pace with the growth of bureaucracies and paperwork in the 1940s and 1950s. As Randy Albelda (1985) and Mary King (1992) also find, occupations of white and black women converged during the immediate postwar period.

Wage earners by gender, 1900–90 Year No. male workers per household No. a. a. 61 in 1990, an increase of 60 percent. The table also belies the existence of the male breadwinner family (relying upon one male wage). The “average” household always relied upon more than one income. The increase in women’s labor force participation and attachment has indeed been a social revolution, perhaps subtle, perhaps not. This revolution has redefined what it means to be a worker, a breadwinner, and even a wife and mother.
