I always enjoy learning about gender roles in relation to food. And I find it interesting that with time these gender roles have been challenged in some ways. However, women are still associated with food and the kitchen in many cultural contexts. It is assumed that they will do the cooking and cleaning up of food. There are also specific ideas about what is categorized as masculine and feminine foods, like women eating salad and men eating meat. For example, in the way food is often marketed, women are the objects to be looked at, not the food item. I like to think about ways we can challenge these stereotypes.
