The everyday management of care. A matter of gender and class (2011)

The objective of this thesis focuses on the study of domestic and care work in Spain from a specific perspective: an analysis of class and gender. The thesis discusses how care is configured between classes and between genders, in other words, how care is distributed and managed depending on the particular position of individuals in both coordinate axes. Therefore, this thesis is based on a sociological perspective that emphasizes conflict, social divisions and power relations and, consequently, it differs from the harmonic or functionalist theories of social reality.
