Out of four sources for self-esteem, homemakers excell in on!y one, accord- ing to Margaret Movius, a Washington State University extension home economist in King County. The area they excell in is independence and variety on the job, which allows them to live according to their values and beliefs. In other sources of self- esteem the homemakers don&apos;t fare as well: • Visible achievement of their goals and objectives. • Evidence of increasing power, control and influ- ence over events which are significant to them. • Evidence of being valued and cared about by people who are important to them. Although homemakers usually do well in these areas, self-esteem is not one of the rewards, largely because society as a ,hole does not place much value on the jobs which don't bring in an income. • "in a culture that measures accomplishment primarily in dollars, home- makers function at a disad- vantage," Movius says. Without holding a paid job, homemakers are cut off from the advantages society values. These include job GaryW.

The home economist of- fers three ways home- makers can improve their self-esteem. She suggests sharing housework, becom- ing involved in organiza- tions and building "'inde- pendence insurance." Sharing housework can reduce the homemaker's resentment of having sole responsibility for the house- hold, and it can unite the family. Without sharing, husbands and wives who have increasingly separate roles over the years are more likely to be unhappy in their marriages. Sharing might mean lowering housekeeping standards, but it might also be an opportunity for teach- ing the skills to others. Becoming involved in organizations helps a home- maker from being socially isolated. It is also an oppor- tunity to exercise personal influence and power for worthwhile projects. Building independence insurance is putting money into a savings account sole- ly for the homemakers. This should amount to the cost of any preparation for enter- ing the job market. The savings accomplish two purposes. First, they are insurance in case a spouse is lost through death, divorce or desertion. Se- cond, they give a monetary value to a job in a culture that measures value in dollars.
