Women, Don’t Drive

This looks very much like a vintage 1940’s Pathe Pictorial piece. In reality it is a Harry Enfield spoof.

However just in case you think it is not based on reality, check out this piece with instructions on How to handle women in the workplace from 1943. And in case you think this is just something from the past, how about this article from last month where women are challenging for the right to drive. And of course we have all seen pages like this on the web. For another eye view of how women were treated in the workplace at the end of the fifties and the first half of the sixties check out Mad Men on AMC. This is an excellent period piece, and makes it easy to appreciate how civilised the war of the sexes has become. While we may not all be perfect nowadays, we have certainly made vast strides since the 40′ , 50’s and 60’s.
