From another post on Catholic feminism:
“Second Wave Feminism relied on secular inventions. Chief of which was the order given to women to forget about being a stay at home mom. Get out of the house, get a job because that male chauvenist pig (meaning all guys) was going to kick you to the curb and leave you with nothing but the kids. The attempt to blame the 1950s is entirely wrong. A perversion of the truth. I was there and I’m tired of seeing fiction like this.”
I’m not sure whether I have biased, selective memory, but I can’t help but wonder why almost every sitcom that is broadcast on TV has a soliloquy where the household’s mother talks about all the contributions she makes to the family, including raising children. The purpose of this speech is almost always to get the husband to pay more attention to her or to make a concession in terms of contributing to domestic work.
Not once does this type of conflict ever result in a 1960s-style rebellion where the women rejects traditional gender roles, either by leaving the family or entering the workforce.
