There was an article in the last week or so, I thought NYTimes, but I
can't find it there, on women who cook, do housework or other chores
in exchange for a free room. I can't figure out a way to search for
this article, and I really need a copy. Can you get me a copy, pdf or
at least a citation?

Thank you.

Dear tinatinuviel-ga,

From your description I believe that it is this article which appears
in Time online dated Monday, Apr. 24, 2006.
"Wanted: New Roommaid
Willing to swap free rent for chores? A new living arrangement falls
back on old-school gender roles",9171,1186562,00.html

I hope I have correctly identified the article. If I have not, or the
answer is unclear, then please ask for clarification of this research
before rating the answer. I shall respond to the clarification request
as soon as I receive it.
Thank you

Searched: chores housework, on a newspaper database which indicated it
was Time Magazine. Then searched for the headline on Google.
