You mist have lived in some other place than many of use growing up in the
40's and 50's. You knew of no "nice girls" havign pregnacy issues, no
problems for gay people, no women graduating from prestigious colleges
with deent record unable to get any jobs other than teacher in an isolated
boarding school or as a paid Girl scout director or a job dictating
letters to unhappy customers of a large book club, who finally decided
Public School teaching was beter than this dead end job. Th men
graduating from the mens college of the same university had ob fairs where
liberal arts graduates were offered jobs with big corporations who put
them through training courses. Women were told, on applying to law school
"Why should we give a place to you when you will only practice for a few
years before you marry and raise a famiy." That was the happy 50's.
Maybe it was for white, male heterosexuals, but not for most. The draft
was also quite a problem for that group.
I am no radical but will admit to working for Stevenson although still too
young to vote for him. You had to be 21 tovote in those days.
