There's no doubt about it: domesticity is enjoying a major comeback, with the explosion of 'stitch n' bitch' knitting circles; our sudden fascination with canning, cheese-making, and grinding our own flour; and a tidal wave of memoirs in the 'I quit my corporate job and found fulfillment on a Vermont goat farm' vein. Why are women embracing the labour-intense domestic tasks that our mothers and grandmothers so eagerly shrugged off? Why has the image of the blissfully domestic, vintage-clad supermom become the media's feminine ideal? In this book, Matchar offers an investigation into how new domesticity is fundamentally reshaping the role of women in society, and what the consequences might be.
