THE DIFFERENT SOCIAL DIMENSIONS OF THE TERMS TIME AND WORK FOR MAN AND WOMEN

Suzana Simonovska, Elena Spasovska

Abstract


This paper is dedicated to the different social conceptualization
of the terms time and work for men and women. Both time and work are
essential dimensions in all of our lives, but indeed very complicated to
define and measure. They determine the lives of men and women in different
ways. Strongly interconnected, the way they are presented in our
societies makes them one of the main generators of inequality and discrimination
between men and women.
By using the existing definitions of work, working hours and
leisure, this paper tends to illustrate the paradox in the estimation of
the productive and reproductive work, and the time needed for their
execution. That proves to be one of the main causes for the still present
gender differences

Key words: TIME, WORK, PRODUCTIVE WORK, REPRODUCTIVE
WORK, WORKING HOURS, FREE TIME.
