Shadow times: the temporal and spatial frameworks and experiences of caring and working

Linda McKie, Susan Gregory, Sophia Bowlby

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

In this article we explore temporal and spatial frameworks for analysing the experience of combining caring for children with participation in paid work. We highlight the pressure to undertake paid employment routinely, which places particular strains upon people who are most likely to have to combine caring and working. The authors assert that mothers continue to have the main responsibility for the organization, if not the conduct, of caring work (Sevenhuijsen, 1998).
