It is considered that the duties of any woman, not necessarily of Russian women, is the ability to prepare tasty food. However, in our epoch of universal emancipation, when a woman spends on the work as much (or even more) time than men, the boundaries of its responsibilities are a little blurred. Women are increasingly involved in business, politics and they come to the kitchen less frequently. Strong-willed and purposeful business ladies, accustomed to act and not reflect, are often called bitches. They are blamed of coldness, excessive rationalism in relations with men and are considered as "unreal" women.
This assertion is increasingly denied by Russian wives, which are successfully combining a career and personal life. Even with the lack of time they are good hostesses, perfect wives and caring mothers. Moreover, today, cooking has become a kind of hobby for for many people. New, previously unavailable products constantly appear in supermarkets. A lot of women have the opportunity to spend their holidays in different countries, where they can learn the national cuisine.
