Vintage Ads Featuring Married Women

Vintage ads featuring married women - don't even look unless you want a scary blast from a male-dominated past. The world of advertisement catered to men in a way that would be unthinkable today. Check out these hilarious advertising gimmicks from the 1940s and “fabulous” 50s. Grandma and her friends just couldn’t catch a break. Not only were they expected to be perky and cute, do housework in their high heels and fall in love with common household cleaners and appliances, they had to maintain those cherry red lips and an unforgiving 22-inch waist. Steady yourself - the last two black and white vintage ads feature a world you won't soon forget.
