In the 1950s, women could not hold skilled jobs because they could get pregnant at any time, (and be fired for that). Why train someone, or build a team, with that kind of unreliability. Because they could lose their job, they could not get credit in their own name. A man had to co-sign. Women had no resources or place to go if abused - especially since had no way to provide for their kids. They stayed. They were obedient. These are the "family values" they want for us again.
