1.- How would you define masculine and feminine? What is the goal of culinary Lessons?The Two words Masculine and Feminine are usually used to describe traits of each gender. They can have different meanings in everyone's eyes. Masculine to a majority of peoplemeans having qualities traditionally associated with men especially, strength and aggressiveness. Feminine to most is the opposite, it means having qualities that are associated with females especially, delicacy and prettiness. I think the goal of Culinary Lessons was to show the stereotype of a woman and year that they can cook and do it well. But they are also worth so much more than that, they have other things that they want to do and this story goes through how she never really got the chance to learn other things. She is seen as more of property to her Husband and is there just to cook, meanwhile she never has the chance to do anything different because of this stereotype at the time.
