What is a housewife?

"Housewife (n): someone (male or female) who is valued because they care for a house, either full time or in conjunction with another job"

Well said. Interesting how the domestic arts, derided for so long as being sexist, unpaid slave labour are making a comeback. Personally, I've never understood what was wrong with being willing and able to pick up after yourself and cook a decent meal.
