A salami sandwich

Make me a sandwich is a phrase used in popular culture, often on the internet, to mock or discredit women. It is a play on the stereotype that women belong in the kitchen.[1][2]

For example, during Hillary Clinton's 2008 campaign for the Democratic nomination for United States President, it was noted in the news that a Facebook group had been created titled "Hillary Clinton: Stop Running for President and Make Me a Sandwich."[3][4]

The phrase, as used in an intended humorous sexist context, dates to at least the early 1990s.[5][6]
