You Mean a Woman Can Open It?

Flashback: Empowering Women in the 1950s

If a woman couldn't possibly open a bottle of ketchup without asking for a man's help back in 1953, then why didn't they just eliminate the middle (wo)man and empower the man to open the bottle and — gasp! — serve his damn self? It was only logical, darling.

What a weird time that was and what a weird ad. And I'm sure there were women then who found this as ridiculous as we do. I wonder what Katherine Hepburn or Bette Davis would say about this ad.
