“In an age in which many middle-class households hire house-cleaners, nannies, gardeners and dog walkers, it may seem passé to point out the need for more study on the work of the home. The work of the home or housework is something that all human beings need and want, but that often is taken for granted until is missing or some sort of conflict arises.” (Home Renaissance Foundation, Aguirre, 2019)
