Household Work as an Ordeal: Culture of Standards Versus Standardization of Culture.
Valadez, Joseph J.; Clignet, Remi
American Journal of Sociology, v89 n4 p812-35 Jan 1984

Simply rejecting housework as a valid task may also move societies further into the world of consumerism and control by large corporations. (IS)
