Women's Invisible Work (1986)

Women's Education des femmes, Spring 1986 - Vol. 4, No. 3

Work carried out in the formal economy gives only a partial picture of all the economically significant activities performed in a society. In fact. the formal economy is buttressed by a large amount of unaccounted for work, carried out by women and men, without pay, in their homes or communities or in the "informal" sphere, where money transactions may take place, but do not enter into national economic accounting.

This article presents a classification of unpaid work, as carried out by women. It is not an exhaustive classification, but it covers the main types of women's "invisible" work.
