In this project, we examined whether urban domestic service functioned as a diffusion channel for fertility decline in Flanders, Contrastingly, servants typically originated from rural working class households, among which fertility declined very late. Qualitative sources indicated that servants indeed gained contraceptive information via their position as cultural intermediaries. Descriptive quantitative analysis of two populations of rural born women furthermore suggested that former urban servants put this information into practice in their later life: their marital fertility was consistently lower than that of other women. Yet, multivariate statistical analysis revealed that the place of residence at the time of childbearing was a more decisive factor than servant experience.
The Sexual Vulnerability and Sexuality of Female Domestic Servants
University of Guelph Bookstore - SLAYERS, SAVIOURS, SERVANTS AND SEX
Don't have an account? This chapter examines the sexuality and sexual vulnerability of female domestic servants in England during the 18th century. It highlights the long acknowledged fact about the vulnerability of female servants to the sexual advances of their masters, their masters' sons, and their fellow male servants. It attempts to identify the causes of that vulnerability and investigates the attitude of employers towards the pregnancy of their servants and the lengths that would go to in order to avoid it. This chapter also discusses incidence of illegitimate births among female servants. Oxford Scholarship Online requires a subscription or purchase to access the full text of books within the service.
