Abstract. The new economy has developed rapidly in recent years with the groundbreaking technological innovations. In that development, the effects of the platform economy, sharing economy and gig economy on the gendered dimensions of work are growing.

van der Lippe, in International Encyclopedia of the Social & Behavioral Sciences, 2 Time-use Patterns. There has been a traditional gender division of time consuming activities within western societies: women used to do most of the household work and childcare, whereas men worked for pay the whole day and were responsible for providing family income.

It seems obvious that gender and economic activity are interrelated; in every society human beings appear to associate some activities with women and others with men. In addition, what constitutes an “economic activity” is open to argument.

In this book Andrew Sayer and Richard Walker takes a fresh and critical look on the claims of a new economy and working life in contemporary society by returning to, and modifying, one of the classical concepts of social science: The division of s: 1. Nancy Cott's book, The Bonds of Womanhood: "Women's Sphere" in New England,is a classic study that examines the concept of separate spheres.

Cott focuses on the experiences of women and shows how within their sphere.

Motherhood may also modify women's labor supply as a result of the gender division of labor within the household (see Section ).Part-time paid work is a common way for mothers to reconcile work and childcare, and it may be considered a substitute.
