I have had this theory for a while and I would love some feedback from the professors as well as members.
The left likes to take credit for Women’s Lib for more and more women going into the workplace. If I am not mistaken the trend started in the 60s and pushed hard in the 70s.
I do wonder how true that really is….
I have often felt the stagnation of the 70s also played a huge role. Would so many women leave home to go to work without all the economic pressures and the need for a two parent income. I know this was the case for my mother. For much of the 60s, she didn’t work, but was forced to go to work during the early 70s when I was just five years old or so as my grandmother watched over me until I was in school.
I do wonder how many women would have full times jobs if a family could survive on one income source?
