Today I went to a "Brocante" (a small flee market) on Rue de Rochechouart (9th arrondissement) and took a couple of pictures. This one shows old Arts Ménagers (literally household arts) magazines from the mid 60's at a time where French women were asked to be good housewives. No wonder then, that titles on the cover deal with bed linen, ironing tables and recipes... French women started their "liberation" in at the end of the 60's but there is still a strong discrimination.
