Out of the kitchen, into the car

In the 1950s, women began to have more time for leisure and some freedom. They even started driving their own cars without their husband. However, women were still oppressed. Even though they could drive, they had no where to go, other than school conferences or shopping; they were not expected to have jobs or bring in any income to the family. They were dependent on their husbands who would provide them with cars and money for them to go shop. “I Love Lucy” would be a good example of this kind of behavior.
