Le travail domestique est-il un résidu ?

Abstract : There is a history of domestic work, like there is a history of professional work, even if both are indissolubly dependent. Since an about sixty years, one can determine "three ages of the relations between the professional and the domestic work" which illustrate a general movement of exteriorization of the services from the private sphere of the family towards the public sphere of the services economy. Important transformations have affected domestic work during these three ages concerning the place of exercise, attribution or the division between the sexes, the qualification and the social recognition. Today, the development of the uses of services to the person (or the family) led to a displacement of the cut between domestic work and the professional, and more largely between employment (qualified and not qualified), and between the sexes. Finally, domestic work, such as there still remains in the households, "hard core" of the task sharing between men and women, remain a such socially irreducible residue then?
