NPR carried a video on their website, an early informercial of sorts from the 1950’s that amused and horrified me.
If you’ve ever wondered why you feel screwed up, Sisterfriend, here’s some insight.
The video is long, but heck yes, it’s worth the watch. You may not even know about the pioneer women who worked to get us our Fifth Freedom (no relation to Philadelphia Freedom) or that we even have one! Try not to blubber during that soliloquy.
I wrote this post earlier today and it disappeared. Perhaps it self-destructed because I didn’t show the video the proper respect. I’ll make no comments this time, except to tell you that I can’t WAIT to read yours!
The film is part of an exhibit at MoMA. If you want to read the full story of kitchen politics, here is the NPR link: http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=129935115&ps=cprs
