a safe and peaceful life was prevalent men were seen as the breadwinners
women were supposed to stay at home doing the housework
taking care of the children Gender discrimination Good Wife's Guide- Do's and Don'ts You’ve just finished high school and your mum is always telling you that you’re already a big girl. Have you thought about having a future career? Medicine and research seem to be very exciting ones… You’re brave enough to choose to continue with your education and attend college. Would you prefer science or engineering class? You dream of managing your own money and buy your own things without asking for permission. Opening a bank account seems to be a good option? Well, there’s no such thing as “suitable jobs for women”, so be sure to keep thoughts like that far away. The simple idea of a woman even attending college is uncanny and paranormal. As a young woman, your main concern must be getting a proper husband and learn how to be a perfect housewife. Your preferences are irrelevant, since women aren’t taught mathematics or science, but home economics and cooking. And remember, educated women aren’t trusty and will always have troubles to find a proper husband. So be sure of your decision of attending college. Well, since women can have neither a bank account, nor money of their own, that’s not a very plausible option. Be sure to ask your husband for an increase in your dress allowance if you think isn’t enough for buying that fancy clothes. No way! Maintaining the house clean and taking care of the kids takes too much time and attention and cannot be combined with a career. A woman’s place is at home, and if boredom ever strikes you, remember that society invented sewing and quilt making clubs. That’s not very advisable. You’ll find that disagreeing with your husband is going to be a serious mistake. He had probably been at the pub for a beer or whisky before dinner, and must be very tired of all that hard work at the office. So please don’t greet him with problems or complains since, at the end of the day, all your monetary allowances depend on him. And if you ever think that your life is worthless, boring and subservient and the idea of a sexist society comes to your mind, be sure to go to bed and have a good rest. Leave those difficult issues for the decades to come. Staying home all day long is so tedious. You’re thinking in opening some sort of flower shop to occupy your time? It’s 10 p.m. and dinner is ready. You had prepared yourself, touched up your makeup, put a ribbon on your hair and you’re trying to be fresh looking for when your husband gets home. But, in spite of the very late hour, he hasn’t arrived yet. Would you complain that he is late for dinner when he finally comes home? the image of a perfect and conservative family was "sold" everywhere In the early 1950's music reflected the ideas of
a conservative white class enjoying the fruits of post-war
prosperity and success more leisure time more money to spend wanted to hear a more exciting kind of music Rhythm
