Vintage Sexism: Yesterday’s Headline Edition


This does look like it can be straight from the 50s, does it not? Including the first line of the article,

“Basic ‘female’ skills are becoming endangered with fewer young women able to iron a shirt, cook a roast chicken or hem a skirt.”

Seriously though, read the rest of the article, it’s really quite hilarious — bullet points included.

h/t to Nate.
