The life of lower middle class women in salaried employment is subject to rather different kinds of pressures. Her working day starts early, for she must feed her husband and children and send them off to school before she herself rushes off to work. In the case of a woman who is the first to be picked up or the last to be dropped home [sic] this can add an hour, or even two, to the long day spent at work. She has to finish many chores like preparing dinner for the family, taking care of children, washing etc. after a long day of work. Very few women happen to have particularly enlightened and helpful relatives (e.g. a mother-in-law) or a co-operative husband who is willing to take over some of the chores. [page 132]

to school before she herself rushes off to work. [...] In the case of a woman who is the first to be picked up or the last to be dropped off at home home this can add an hour, or even two, to the long day spent at work. [...] [Whilst her husband relaxes with a cold drink under a fan, she has to rush straight into the kitchen to prepare the family evening meal. And there are umpteen little chores to be attended to, young children to be looked after and the family fed and put to bed. Some chores, such as washing clothes and cleaning the house, are inevitably put off until the weekend which therefore is not a time for rest or for demonstrations in aid of women's rights.] [...] Women who happen to have particularly enlightened and helpful relatives (e.g. a mother-in-law) or a cooperative and politically commited husband (a rare commodity), who are willing to take over some of their chores during their short absence, can support meetings concerned with women's rights.
