Article – Spare Rib: “Sex Objects at Work”

Unknown Author.1974. Sex Objects, Surprise Statistics. Spare Rib. (22), p. 35.

In a groundbreaking study of statistics, Spare Rib discovers how women are going unrecognised for the work they do in the home, whilst simultaneously being sexualised by their male co-workers in the work place. This became an important line of inquiry for feminists in the early 1970s as more women supported their families independently as the sole breadwinners at an increasing rate.
