The article deals with the situation of lgbt-families in Germany.
The main contribution of this text is to question and challenge the way sociology of work “forgot” women in its analysis.
Women are exploited through the appropriation of their domestic work.
The author calls for a definition of “sex” as a social category and for a homogenous approach of both categories in sociology.
The different authors share the view that current rigid sex roles are social constructions, obstacles for equality and stem from traditions which don’t belong to a modern society.
