Go back to American Housewife as Dream Image

American Housewife as Dream Image
The suburban housewife-- she was the dream image of the young
American women and the envy, it was said, of women all over the
world. The American housewife-- freed by science and labor-saving
appliances from the drudgery, the dangers of childbirth, and the
illnesses of her grandmother-- had found true feminine fulfillment.
