In polite society women stayed home and took cooked and cleaned for their husbands. Is this sexism?
. In THOSE DAYS, the males didn't let their "little women" drive the car. Also in THOSE DAYS, men took their hats off when riding in an elevator. Also, in THOSE DAYS, men didn't eat their supper while sitting in their underwear.
ALSO in those days, women stood little chance of attending medical school, law school, dental school or vet school. WOMEN were discriminatated against and in many fields today, WOMEN are still being treated like sub-humans.
ALSO, women were prohibited by law from getting an abortion, if one should be desired. AHHHHHHHHHHH!
