Femivore Definition

Word du Jour: Femivore

A woman who considers herself feminist, but also devotes a serious amount of time to the old-time woman's work of feeding her family the cleanest, freshest food — even if she has to grow it herself — is a femivore.

Yesterday New York Times Magazine presented the femivore's dilemma: it's hard to be a feminist while you're gathering eggs from the backyard chicken coop and practicing great-great grandma's canning technique. It sounds like a throwback to the preindustrial age, but femivores argue the same ideals that sent women to the workforce — self-sufficiency, autonomy, and personal fulfillment — sent them to the garden. That may be true, but how much help they're getting from spouses still surely makes all the difference.
