Reject Modernity, Embrace Tradition: Women Discover the Delights of Domesticity!


The rise of the ‘tradwife’ — why some women say they are opting out of work


Social media trends such as “tradwives” and “stay-at-home girlfriends” depict an idealized version of traditional gender roles, but this lifestyle is neither realistic nor feasible for most women.

In reality, women are working more than ever before, and relying on one partner’s income often poses financial risks.

Men are also scaling back at work, suggesting a shift in priorities.

Furthermore, the “tradwife” trend is often presented as a response to the pressures faced by young women.

However, it represents an unrealistic fantasy that perpetuates patriarchal ideas and offers no real solution.

Women face significant financial inequality and are more likely to experience financial vulnerability.

Staying at home forgoes paid labor and economic security, leaving women dependent and potentially powerless.

While traditional gender roles persist in some households, there is a growing number of couples who are re-evaluating their work-life balance and seeking a more equitable division of labor.
