Why We Need Feminism in 2021 #25

Day 25 of #whyweneedfeminismin2021

Can we just go ahead and simply accept the fact that cooking is just a basic life skill. It is needed, but it does not define you, specially when you are a woman.

I am sure you know what I am talking about, the stares, the glares, the frowns when one hears that a woman does not know how to cook, or they put in front of you, a half-baked-half-burnt pie. Oh, forbid!! At times it is just humorous, and at times plane drab.

Also, have you noticed that cooking becomes an art when a man does it, a duty when a woman does it.

Again, chefs? Ratio in genders? Just saying.

  1. i’m an ok cook. i can follow directions (recipes) and i learned at an early age (first grade) how to cook (scrambled eggs). in any of my relationships, i was the cook as my female counterpart had never learned to cook. fyi…i was an only child.


Your perception holds importance for me.
