It describes momism as “the demonic version of domestic ideology” (Rogin, 8) and the loss of the typical role of women in society prior to the war. Previously women were limited to managing the household but during the war the opportunities for women expanded. Being allowed these opportunities women had acquired a taste of the powers and liberties that came with them. As soon as the men returned back to their former roles and reestablished America as a patriarchal based society they forced women back to their structured household roles. Some women resented returning to their former roles of taking care of the home so instead they searched for new roles.

The women of the feminine mystique had the choice to become a housewife or obtain a career, although they were pressured by society to adopt the latter, the element of choice was still there for them. It was the difference between what they thought their lives would be and the actual reality which led women to develop discontent, depression and ‘the problem with no name’ . It was this element of choice and the usage of it to the full potential which ties Friedan and Sanger close together, the women of Sanger’s time were limited with their choice for family planning and the lack of knowledge held them back due to child rearing requirements. For the women of the fifties Friedan felt that they were not using their freedom of choice to the full potential and should instead
This once again did not challenge the common belief that a women’s responsibility is to run the household while the men runs the business. Although Lucy was not the perfect 50’s housewives, the show was a success because of its uniqueness in character and physical
Calixta's position is a clear illustration of these issues. The Antebellum era didn't have a found outlook for women's roles in society. Most women, like Calixta, were expected to become mothers and live out their lives working at home and raising a family. Now, let's look again at the storm and its relation to what Calixta is going through here. With this roadblock in the way, the Calixta and Alcee share a temptation to initiate the affair.
Margaret is narrow-minded, thinking that she should only bring in money to the house, being a slave, not thinking for herself. Ms. Pearson also makes this observation known in the book, “Your mother is very short sighted about your future; I have told you that before” (Verdelle 210). Margarete’s idea of success for Denise includes education, but educational advancement is not why she wants Denise back in the household. Margarete became “a victim to social restriction that prohibits any forward movement for African-Americans” (Day 420). From her perspective, Denise is there to help with Margarete’s baby in the belly (Verdelle 85).

In colonial North America, the lives of women were distinct and described in the roles exhibited in their inscriptions. In this book, Good Wives the roles of woman were neither simple nor insignificant. Ulrich proves in her writing that these women did it all. They were considered housewives, deputy husbands, mistresses, consorts, mothers, friendly neighbors, and last but not least, heroines. These characteristics played an important role in defining what the reality of women’s lives consisted of.
One famous instance is Mary Wollstonecraft, who had a child out of wedlock and did not marry the father. Mary was self-educated and supported herself by writing fiction, non-fiction and translating literary works. But what truly makes her stand out was her 18th century book on the rights of women which she stated rights and liberties pertained to everyone, men and women. Another woman who vocal about women’s rights was Abigail Adams who did not hold back any when it came to expressing herself to her husband John Adams. Abigail implored to her husband as he was drafting the Declaration of Independence to not forget women who were a part of the new world and deserved a voice.
This is a representation for the new woman in 1920s who is independent and eager to manage her own business. However this historically applies to “white and middle-class” women or upper-class black women (Parasecoli, 2010, p. 458). It is rare for a working-class black woman to establish her own business, since the social situation is harsh at times. Tiana is the hybridization of different classes, since her ambition does not fit to her class. Also, the choice of occupation for Tiana is limited to cook, waitress, and domestics in the 1920s (Jacqueline, 1985).

Baseball was one thing that proved women’s abilities in society, along with many other abilities such as working outside the home.They broke away from the stereotype that women belonged in the home where they would cook, clean and care for the children. They showed that they were not made for the house, they were independent and capable.
