Any thoughts?

When I think about the 50's they don't really seem that far away, but when you read something like this and compare it to our modern day lives the change is just extraordinary!

Yes, go feminism! :rave:

No of course the text book isn't spot on, no textbook is spot on, nearly all textbooks have bias, especially with history and social science but it does paint the picture!

If he's out grinding all of his day at work then I don't see why the wife (if a housewife) shouldn't do a few of the things like dinner. Perhaps not the whole "make the evening his", but it's nothing too shocking.

Oh yessss! You're on the new A-level. So your doing it all in one go!

It's different for us, I'm doing 1951-2007 now, last year was just 50's, 60's and 70's. This year is much better I think

I am going to file a complaint against the Pulitzer Prize award committee for not nominating this book when it came out.

edit: Thank you for posting this. Just sent it to my gf....and would send it to every woman on my friends list if I had the time.

Any men see themselves delivering the subservient role should they find themselves earning significantly less than their partner?

I mean, since it sounds 'reasonable' to some that a housewife should do this then equally a lower earning male could and should deliver it too in similar circumstances, right?
