Food for thought – a few quotes

‘I always wondered why the writers leave housekeeping and cooking out of their tales. Isn’t that what all the great wars and battles are fought for – so that at a day’s end a family may eat together in a peaceful house?’ Ursula K Le Guin, Voices

‘… there she had to do hard work from morning until evening, get up before daybreak, carry water, make fires, cook and clean’. Cinderella adapted by the Brothers Grimm

‘For me it’s about the value placed on the tasks that we do, those that are unacknowledged but keep the wheels turning in the home’. Anon (from discussion relating to this project)

‘Are domestic tasks servile?‘ Anon (from discussion with brother)
