Sažetak
The question of women’s labour is theoretically and empirically conceptualized through two issues: women’s entering the labour market, and work-family conflict, which are both defined by the division between public and private sphere. As women were permeating public aspect of labour, female domestic work has remained economically and politically marginalized. With the emergence of creative industries, the new level of the public and private aspect of female labour was opened. With the intensive research and policy interest for creative industries, the dictum was that creative labour will be emancipatory for both women and men. This proved to be techno-optimistic fallacy since creative labour resulted in covert re-domestication of female creatives. Although economically independent with lucrative jobs that they consider as a personal choice, female creatives are facing the implosion of the public into the private sphere, while the social value of their work decreased. Female creatives’ labour is becoming a golden cage, since it encourages non-paid, underpaid and self-exploitative practices that put women in more precarious positions than men. Female labour practices become embedded into their private homes and daily activities, forging the implosion of public into the private sphere. This paper has a theoretical scope, but draws upon empirical data on women in creative industries in South-Eastern Europe, with emphasis on Croatia.
