So of course I know we’ve come a long way (not a long way in some regards too, regressing in many ways . . . ) and I know the “happy housewife” style ads of the 50s, but I had never seen these ads.
Wow…just wow. Hard to believe that was accepted and perhaps glorified, but we sure have regressed lately. (trying not to get too political, but that’s hard.)
Those were the days when Ralph Kramden’s mantra was a feigned punch at his wife while shouting, “To the moon, Alice!”, and Julie Bigelow, in Carousel, considered being hit by Billy as proof of his love.
Both genders needed enlightenment. For the most part, women got there first.
Wow, really something! Unbelievable for nowadays.
Nothing like punches to the face or prevention from having one’s own bank account to speed up enlightenment.
Had to share this cartoon. But glad those days are gone.
