If you are a young man looking for a woman who cooks, irons and sews, you may be out of luck. Many under 30 women are unable to complete simple skills that their mothers would find a breeze. This traditional skill loss isn't just limited to females. many young men can't change a tire.
BASIC "female" skills are becoming endangered with fewer young women able to iron a shirt, cook a roast chicken or hem a skirt.
Just as more modern men are unable to complete traditional male tasks, new research shows Generation Y women can't do the chores their mothers and grandmothers did daily, reported The Courier-Mail.
Only 51 per cent of women aged under 30 can cook a roast compared with 82 per cent of baby boomers.
