Perfect Wives in Ideal Homes by Virginia Nicholson, The Coronation & Becoming Housewives Again

Perfect Wives in Ideal Homes by Virginia Nicholson, The Coronation & Becoming Housewives Again A SERIES PART 1

Length 11:50

In her latest exposé of women in the 20th Century, author Virginia Nicholson lifts the veneer of respectable perfection of the 1950’s. We start with the queen: pretty wife and mother who ascends to the throne just in time for us to scramble for a tv to watch her coronation in our post war homes that actually had four standing walls and a man inside – blissful novelty or stifling trap?
