There are claims that domestic duties performed by women are experiencing a resurgence, with feminists embracing all things housework, particularly anything to do with the kitchen.
Some say domestic duties are even a little bit sexy?
I do clean the shower in the nude just before I get in for a wash, you know, two birds, one stone. Is that what they mean?
The notorious Women’s Institute (WI) in the UK is behind the claim. Taking into account this organisation’s history of revitalising rural communities by encouraging women to become more involved in producing food during WWI – think jam making – it makes sense they’d be promoting all things domestic, particularly kitchen duties such as cooking meals for your family.
And by “sexy” they mean embracing kitchen duties promotes happy relationships and families. They don’t mean you have to strip naked and serve dinner on your bare hands, although if that’s something you choose to do then go for it.
Feminism is defined as women being able to choose how they live.
Also it's good to keep up those domestic skills, you know, just in case men are called to fight in a war any time soon, and just in case women are no longer allowed to join the army, undoing decades of equality in the armed forces and before women become too attached to those careers they've spent years building.
