The Most Valuable Workers Not Counted by GDP

What is the economic value of housework?

  • According to GDP: $0
  • According to Salary.com: $162,581
Based on a survey of stay-at-home mothers, Salary.com calculates a full-time, stay-at-home mom would earn $162,581 US if she was actually paid for all her work.

〰  ⚤ 〰

“With a nearly 96-hour work-week and a six-figure annual rate, moms may be the most valuable workers in the country.”

〰  ⚤ 〰

Housekeeping, day-care, teacher, cook, computer expert, laundress, janitor, facilities manager, chauffeur, CEO, psychologist, nurse … if Society paid women what their labour is actually worth, Society would be bankrupted.

½ of Total National Output

Women workers contribute 40% of GDP in developed nations, but what if housework was included in Gross National Product?

In developed economies women produce about 40% of official GDP.

— ⚤ —

However, women also do most of the housework – 70% of it. If the value of this housework (calculated at the average wage for a nanny or domestic – that is, at artificially low wages) were included in GNP, then we would produce significantly over ½ of total national output.

What our contribution to economic wealth would be if the true value to Society of “women’s work” was recognized, and we were compensated the way sports celebrities are, is mind boggling.

What is female infanticide?

Female infanticide is the deliberate killing of newborn female children. In countries with a history of female infanticide, the modern practice of sex-selective abortion is often discussed as a closely related issue. Female infanticide is a major cause of concern in several nations such as ChinaIndia and Pakistan. It has been argued that the low status in which women are viewed in patriarchal societies creates a bias against females.

Rape is Not About Sex

Research shows that rape is not about sex.

〰  ⚤ 〰

It is about power, humiliation, degradation, and punishment.

〰  ⚤ 〰

Ejaculation is an after-thought.

“Speak” is commonly read in high school and college literature classes, and has proven to be a useful springboard to conversations about rape mythology, sexual violence and consent.
