“Domestic labour is a monotonous daily sequence of routine actions that has informed women’s role and conditioned their behaviour”. (Schor, G. 2016)

Cultural associations with the female body surround the home, domesticity and raising a family. The female body has become a sign of oppressive patriarchal society and gender stereotyping. These social constructs influence our representation of the feminine form, even today. Gendered expectations repeatedly performed, result in the disappearance of the individual, losing our sense of identity, becoming nothing more than the chore they perform.
