Should women be submissive to their husbands?

A how-to manual called Marry and Submit Yourself is proving a hit in Spain (Casate y se sumisa) and Italy (Sposati e sii sottomessa).

It is aimed at newly-wed women - teaching them to accept criticism of their cooking or housekeeping, and to learn to keep the peace in a marital home.

The author, Costanza Miriano told Newsnight that her book is not about women being doormats, but being supportive.
