The “business” of Housewifery ~

“Housewifery is the business of the mistress of the family.”  If this definition were analyzed, we should find the word, “business” meaning concern; “mistress,” the person versed in everything; and “family,” a group of individuals living under one roof.  Thus, to enlarge the definition, it would read:  Housewifery is the concern of the person versed in everything pertaining to a group of individuals living under one roof.

The accepted fact to-day is that every housewife ought to become as proficient in her realm as the business man is in his.  As a man can not do good work without the best facilities and the most careful organization of his office, so the housewife is handicapped unless her workshop is suitable planned and arranged.
