British food policy adviser Rosie Boycott has recently claimed that feminism has fuelled the obesity crisis, and she’s not talking about the “fat acceptance” movement, she’s talking about the decline of home cooking.
The claim is, women’s widespread entry into the workplace has meant families no longer consistently eat home made food, and there’s now a “lost generation” of people who rely on fast food and processed dinners.
Watch as I lay out the research backing this up.
While I’m certainly not arguing women should all stop working and get back into the kitchen, I do think the research showing women are becoming less happy or that less time spent with children contributes to obesity, is really interesting.
Talking about it and exploring these issues with an open mind is a healthy thing to do.
But you can bet good money that these issues won’t be covered by mainstream media because they run against the feminist orthodoxy.
