This oven mitt-shaped book juxtaposes images of a vintage cookbook with snippets of contemporary advice columns to examine the roles that women are continually grappling with. Iconic imagery and text from the 1940s and 50s makes it clear that women have come a long way, yet the newspaper advice columns are a reminder of how easy it is to fall into accommodating, traditional feminine roles.
