This 'in the final analysis' allows them to delegate domestic responsibility largely to women: their wives and the mothers of their children. It is as if their wives are consigned to being responsible for domestic labour, along with holding and exercising domestic power, on their behalf (directly and indirectly, such as through their wives' childcare activities); in trust; as agents. Perhaps an apposite way of conceptualising the resulting relationship between wives and domestic labour is alluded to by Halsey when he suggests (as noted previously) that 'women still bear the main burden of domestic management'.
