Yet another way to gain knowledge is to gossip. Their knowledge however is limited to other's secret and intimacies.

That is a very sweeping statement! Do housewives have more general knowledge than female office workers, female business women, professional women or any other women. No they don't because ALL women are a pretty intelligent and knowledgable group no matter what their vocation is in life.

You mentioned "general" knowledge, but didn't really mean to say it applies to what is commonly conceived to mean that. So, "general" knowledge encompasses a whole lot of spectrum and in the way some look at it, is awareness, inside knowledge and expert opinion on everything that is going around. Some have a terrific ability to gatther every small bit of incident that is happening around them and they arm themselves with all this knowledge, thinking a day would come, when they can put it to use, whatever may be the end benefit. -:)

When a man marries he selects a girl who is naturally intelligent working and good at all and when housewives get exposure they proove themselves as more practical and show that they are capable of doing anything..

Really ??? may be in GOSSIPS !! and unworthy knowledge :-)))
(well... these ladies belong to All India Radio !! )

I feel working ladies are more in touch with the latest and whats happening around the world. They are more knowledgeable in healthy communication and widening their Horizon.

Nevertheless, there are Professional Home Ministers who are well educated and know how to manage their time more fruitfully - like educating the kids, doing some part-time work, doing social service, helping their spouse in his business or his growth etc...n managing wonderfully as one dynamic lady whom u can see some here in our forum. One of them is EmM. She is very knowledgeable and simply amazing !!
