Culture influences human behavior, thinking
Marjorie DeVault (1994) argues:
“Feeding work has become one of the primary ways that women ‘do’ gender”. Performing the roles of cooking and feeding thus often serves as a reaffirmation of gender roles so that for many women this work “has become an apparently ‘natural’ part of the gendered self” (122).
