What women really really want
There is a piece in today’s Conversation online magazine that caught my eye.
It was headlined, “Tradwives: the women looking for a simpler past but grounded in the neoliberal present”.
This is about a new craze in America in which women get proper stroppy about their right to “put hubby first” and happily superglue themselves to kitchen sinks and cookers. Just like 1959.
Needless to say, the academics at the Conversation dived straight into an orgy of impenetrable feminist theory about underlying social, cultural, economic and political structures.
For one moment I thought about waking my wife up to tell her all about the piece. Then reality kicked in and I abandoned the idea.
