My husband gives me an allowance

Sophie White explores the dangerous illusion of women’s choice.

Most of my friends in relationships keep their finances completely separate. It makes total sense, after all we’ve got the vote and contraception and have largely shed most of the stifling tyranny of hundreds of years of oppression. Right? We’ve even got women who don’t identify as feminists now! Surely that seems like a good sign, we want feminism to be redundant, that means all the work is done! So hooray, we’re equal. Nothing at all is wrong with the system and we can all go home.

Our society functions on women picking up the slack where social policy is failing the family and the eldery. It’s in society’s interest to keep women at the bottom of the economic pyramid so they can provide this free labour.
