Women and Work in Literature:

How do writers represent the work of being women—where “work” is defined broadly to encompass not only paid labor inside and outside the home, but also the work of performing femininity and domesticity? How do writers address social assumptions about who should be performing work, and for what purpose?

We welcome submissions in U.S. and British literature, though we will consider submission from other traditions.
