Dona de casa em inglês é "housewife". Lembra do seriado "Desperate Housewives"? Donas de casa desesperadas.

Along with housewives we now have househusbands. The growing contingent of jobless men were the quickest to accept the term.

You can also say 'homemaker.'

And we also have "the at-home partner" -- that is, the one who manages the household (particularly when there are chidren involved) while the other works. Keep in mind that the term "housewife" can have a negative connotation for many people who therefore would not like to be referred to as such.

How about "Domestic engineer" ? I saw it here (at 1:13):

I don't really know, however, if that's something polite to say. Could anybody tell us that?

Hope this helps and TIA ;)

I guess she was just making fun of it.

I thought that as well, but I've heard that expression so many times that I've begun to wonder if it would be something similar to "flight attendant" and "stewardess", you know what I mean? (Today, the term "Flight attendant" is considered to be more polite than "stewardess")

Well, we can find "stewardess" in the dictionary but not "domestic engineer". It sounds to me more like an american word, by the way.
I think that she's just kidding , perhaps it's a way to mean that she as a housewife is suppoused to work as a machine.(so unffair).
