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, reigned 1888–1918), 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 second-wave feminism, if not the antithesis of modern civilization, and is not espoused [sic] in enlightened societies today.

Today, it is commonplace for women to enter the workforce, but as recently as the 1980s, Nancy Reagan was criticized for meddling in public affairs.[1]

Lingering effects[edit]

[Her] school taught her only basic theology—to include, by law, a theology not her own—and homemaking, as well as the rules under which she must live out her life. That last was a part of that theology not her own.
—Tom Kratman, reflecting without awareness in The Caliphate

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.[2] (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.[3]

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