Abstract: This study analyzes the transition from a patriarchal, male dominated workforce to a subsidized, visualized, and excavated history of a cyclical, feminine workforce. We take a look into the last 75 years, questioning how design and imagination changed Women’s experiences at work. We start with Testimonials from women who experienced late-stage American capitalism, followed by shifting landscapes of time, the forms that attempted to subsidize women’s issues, and the objects that attempted to change the experience of time. The final chapter of this study focuses on the connective tissue between women and research regarding the feminine work experience.
Keywords: Feminism, Archeology, Fiction, Speculative Design, Critical Gender Design
