Kinder, Küche, Kirche (Children, Kitchen and Church) is a German expression denoting the role of women in society. Allegedly first used by Kaiser Bill (Kaiser Wilhelm II: 1859–1941), it was also promoted by the Third Reich, although with less emphasis on the "Kirche."

It is remarkably similar to the role recommended (though not demonstrated) by Phyllis Schlafly and, by extension, the Eagle Forum and Conservapedia.

It is the antithesis of modern civilization feminism and "Women's Lib" and is not espoused [sic] in enlightened societies today.

In the German school system, the school day generally runs from 8 a.m. to no later than 2 p.m. with most schools ending their day by 1 p.m.[1] (Elementary schools often let out at 11:30 a.m.) In the past, a number of German schools had no food service, so students had to leave campus to eat. German feminists claim that this system was originally designed to reinforce the Kinder and Küche portion of this philosophy.[citation needed]

After all, if you release hordes of hungry Kinder in the early afternoon, it's best that Mutti be waiting at home for them so she can fix them their lunch.
