Essay question In the past 50 years, there has been a dramatic increase in female participation in the labour force. Three possible explanations are: (a) a change in social attitudes toward women working, (b) technological advances that make it easier to accomplish household chores (shopping, cleaning, and so on) without women themselves having to remain at home full time, and (c) the possibility that material goods are a luxury and that people wish to buy disproportionately more of them as living standards rise.
