Wow! There once was a time when men were men, women were servants and we called it the American way. I have found one way to learn about the inner workings of a society is to take a look at the advertising that was created to motivate it.

In today's societal landscape we're all trying to lose weight, improve our sex lives and use only as directed. In the 1950's it was a different time indeed.

Women didn't have jobs outside the home, men ruled the roost and a good cup of coffee was almost as important as being faithful to your spouse. Don't believe me? Just take a look at this rather sexist Folgers Coffee commercial.
