Hist 1302 reflection three | American history homework help

PROMPT: Post WWII prosperity in the United States centered on the suburban home, and the heart of the suburban home was the kitchen, a place Americans typically understood as the housewife’s domain. 

The source for this activity consists of a 1955 promotional comedy “A Word to the Wives.” Funded by numerous corporations and industries that benefited from suburban homebuilding, the movie sought to make the argument that state-of-the-art appliances not only made women’s domestic duties easier, they raised the standards of home cooking and entertainment, and ushered in a modern suburban society that associated the home, rightly or wrongly, with leisure and entertainment than hard work. 

Discuss the differences between the “modern kitchen” of the 1950s and the kitchens you know from your family life.

What are the major differences?

How realistically did the movie portray the suburban couples of the 1950s?

What is probable, and what is wishful thinking?

As you consider the kitchens of the 1950s versus your interpretation of a modern home today, what changes in design preferences tell you about gender relations, family structure, and cultural values?
