Wages for Housework

  • Corporate body
  • 1972-

The International Wages for Housework Campaign (IWFHC) is a grassroots women's network campaigning for recognition and payment for all caring work, in the home and outside. The campaign was initiated in 1972 by Selma James, who first put forward the demand for wages for housework at the third National Women's Liberation Conference in Manchester (UK), coining the word 'unwaged'. The IWFHC state that they begin with those who possess the least power internationally – unwaged workers in the home (mothers, housewives, domestic workers denied pay), unwaged subsistence farmers and workers on the land and in the community. They consider the demand for wages for unwaged caring work to be also a perspective and a way of organising from the bottom up, of autonomous sectors working together to end the power relations among them.
