This study deals with the effect of water and sewage systems women’s and men’s work in the home and outside the home from a gender perspective in a rural area of Sweden. This study is a qualitative study conducted through interviews of senior citizen experiences of the life be-fore the sewage systems installation and after the sewage systems had been installed. The re-sults of the study are that life before the installation of the sewage systems has been very gen-der segregated in Korpilombolo and especially troublesome for women. Life after the sewage systems installation, on the other hand, has eased the labor, especially for women, but they are still performing the work in the homes. The washing machine in particular was revolutionary. In the discussion, I have compared conditions today based on previous research and my own experiences on this. In addition to the interviews, the study relies on contemporary sources films from 1940 to 1970 era in Korpilombolo and some documentary photographs that de-scribe what I have said in my study.
