A confident woman who knows how to get things done. Can do any assortment of these things: sew her own clothing, cook nourishing food, clean quickly and efficiently, raise smart, outgoing children who know how to question the world around them, fix any number of household and/or automotive problems, work from home with kids and pets running under-foot all day long, provide stimulation for said kids and pets all day long, work away from home while still having to run a household in her 'spare' time, knows how to cure any health malady or offer comfort to sniffly partners and children, supports partners in any desires of their heart and expects the same in return. A hausfrau doesn't act as a doormat and speaks her mind, and rarely has a spare minute to bother with wondering if the job she is doing is enough because, of course, it is - all the while striving to be a better mother and partner, often putting others before herself.
That woman can do it all, she's a real hausfrau.
