In college, I once took a class all about the 1950’s. It was a fascinating time in America. Communism was the “C” word and we faced increasing tensions with Russia and Korea. Many people associate this decade with such things as the birth of rock and roll and the Golden Age of television. Others with a sexualization we were just beginning to uncover with the advent of Playboy Magazine and the most famous blonde to ever grace the Silver Screen: Marilyn Monroe.
For me, I associate this time with a different type of woman: the homemaker.
