I just thought I would like to add a little anecdote to this thread.
For some thirty years now, if I am in Paris on a Sunday, my French law agent has invited me to join him and his family for Sunday lunch at a restaurant, always Kosher and usually in the Marais district. North African Jewish cuisine is to die for.
Well, on one of these occasions, we started talking about kashrut and his wife spoke at length about the importance this gave to the rôle of the wife and mother in the Jewish home. As she is a prominent Socialist politician, I could not resist asking her what the Feminists would make of that.
"After all," said I, "Shouldn't husbands do their share of the cooking?"
"Ah," she retorted, "But, if the husbands cook, then their wives will have to eat it - And this is liberation?"
Never argue with a politician.
