The s 1960s a new, more progressive era in many 1960s. But on the home front or, rather, in Madison Avenue 's depiction of sexistdomestic life was still pretty much the same as it had always advertisements. And while you could binge watch all 1960s seasons of "Mad Men" for some credence to Sexist point, a quick search through Pinterest will do.

Even as organizations like The National Organization of Women took shape and the Women's Rights Movement worked to expand the roles of women advertisements of the home, supporters of domesticity stood their ground.

One of the most notable is, of course, Sexist Homemaker. As the Smithsonian's Judith Gradwohl explains :. By the late s, Suzy Homemaker 1960s started to sound a little defensive about the domesticity the toys promoted.

Small-waisted, beautifully dressed, a welcome-home smile — and delighted to be given a vacuum cleaner for Christmas. Women had to be perfect housewives and mothers — and stay attractive enough to keep their man. This paint advert illustrated how well white gloss covered black. Looking at the ads today, nothing about them could be described as fondly jocular. Quite the reverse. We now know that it is a potent carcinogen. Threatened by the invention of artificial sweeteners, the sugar industry promoted sugar as an energising product that reduced fatigue and curbed appetite.

And what about her skin? According to such ads, she might drive that man away with her so-called coarse pores, old mouth, tan lines, zits, wrinkles, middle-age skin, hairy legs or lip, visible veins, or horror of all horrors, dishpan hands. Above: An example from a series of s Waldorf ads about bad toilet paper ruining family life.

Click image to see the larger version. Flipping through the pages, I found an ad for Waldorf toilet paper, which was a little comic strip. A man has become so cranky toward his wife that their marriage is on the rocks. The couple holds the tissue up to the light, and they see little pieces of wood in it. Waldorf advertised repeatedly in these magazines. In some of the ads, the wife was cranky, and then it was their little girl.

Eventually, the whole family was affected by this scourge. I found it so funny. The most common premise is that a woman does not want to offend a man. In the s, dancing was an important social activity, and shampoo companies wanted women to worry about yet another way they could smell bad.

I also have an interest in sociology and psychology, particularly the way we advertise to women and how women are treated by the media in general.

I think we, as a society, are extremely cruel to women. I look at these old ads and feel as though nothing has changed. In the old ads, you can offend people in myriad ways, with runs in your stockings, by your hair smelling, with bad breath, with your underarm odor. The Victorians were really into things that you strap on your face to lift your chin and reform your nose. Every age has its neurotic beauty fixations. In the late 19th century, magazines took over the advice and care of your family.

As magazines were available to more and more people, you could read about what to buy, how to take care of your kids, what you should look like, and what you should be thinking and doing.

People turned to the magazines to get information and form opinions about themselves. Suddenly strangers were telling people what they should look like, buy, and think. I noticed a fever pitch building up during the s. You open up any of these magazines now, and you burst out laughing. Paranoia, fear, inadequacy—that all sells products. The second is that your female friends will talk about you behind your back because you stink.

A lot of these ads were done during the Depression so you had women desperately trying to get work. Somebody finally tips them off that they need to take a bath because they stink. When women got thin due to hunger during the Depression, the slender, straight flapper silhouette went out of style. The economy is tied intrinsically to sexuality, and I like exploring exactly how that works.

Products that help you put on weight became trendy during the Depression. I am trying to scan and put the body-image variables on the site. Look at her! Oh, yeah, all the men are flocking around. What is it today? What am I supposed to look like now?

Okay, let me flatten my boobs or let me pump my boobs up. Let me get rid of my butt. Strangely enough, this 19th century device promised to shrink the bust.
