Well, she is depicted as having personal interests in Celestina Warbeck's music and Gilderoy Lockhart's books, although I concede that (a) both of these interests are portrayed - through Harry's viewpoint - as being a bit fangirly and embarrassing (b) both interests are connected to romance - Warbeck's songs are emotional ballads about romantic live and Molly clearly has a big crush on Lockhart, so once again female characters' interests seem to revolve around romantic relationships (c) she is depicted as using Lockhart's books mainly for helpful hints with the housework - again, it's linked into motherhood.
