Empowering women or not?

The NY Post says Katrina Holte, of Hillsboro, Oregon, quit her job in order to spoil her husband like a 1950s housewife. The 30 year-old dresses in 1950s clothing and makes sure dinner is on the table when her husband, Lars, arrives home from his engineering job.

She tells the paper, “I feel like I’m living how I always wanted to. It’s my dream life and my husband shares my vision. It is a lot of work. I do tons of dishes, laundry and ironing, but I love it and it’s helping to take care of my husband and that makes me really happy. When I look at everything that is happening in the world now, I feel like I belong in a nicer, more old-fashioned time. I agree with old-fashioned values, like being a housewife, taking care of your family, nurturing the people in it and keeping your house in excellent condition, so everyone feels relaxed.”
