  1. This post reminded me of my grandmother. She was a "housewife" in the 1950's. She was very much like the stereotypical homemaker and still is in some senses. She has always made dinner at five pm every evening for my grandfather. She will leave her plans early just to be home to make sure he has dinner on the table. She is a very strong and smart woman. She was a Cornell graduate and is a vibrant leader in her community. She is outgoing and expresses all of her opinions in other areas of her life. However, with my grandfather she very much fits into this mold of homemaker cleaning and cooking for him. She is constantly taking care of him. It is interesting to see how this role of being homemaker has been such a big part of her life. In contrast, my mother does not act this way. My father cooks most of the meals and enjoys cooking and they split up all of the housework. They are very egalitarian. It shows how women’s roles in the family have changed over time.
