A 1950's housewife. Simple, tasteful, reminiscent of the time for women. Despite having earned the right to vote, women had it hard. With their husbands dealing with war, they were often lonely and oppressed in the workforce, being paid much lower wages than males, and having such limited opportunities to further their education. Marriage was expected and encouraged, though hardly made life better. The housewife ran the home and kept things moving throughout even oppression from their spouses. But what I see here is a silent but vivid decorum not found in our society today, beneath the surface.
