"When did a certain group of men take over the womanly art of home cooking? And why can't we who are married to them just sit back and call their conquest of the kitchen a feminist triumph? If you had told a mistress of the house in the 1950s that one day her husband would julienne a carrot, she would have wept with joy ... The first wave of feminists considered liberation from kitchen duties, along with liberation from housework and enforced vapidity, an absolute must." —Hanna Rosin, on Double X
