The color of walls or lipstick.





"Perhaps the new image of woman did not permit the internal honesty, the depth of perception, and the human truth  ....The color of walls or lipstick, the exact temperature of the oven....  Judging from the Women's magazines today, the concrete details of women's lives are more interesting than their thoughts, their ideas, their dreams.  Just the richness of the detail, the careful description of small events mask the lack of dreams, the vacuum of ideas, the terrible boredom that has settled over the American housewife."


-The Feminine Mystique (1963) by Betty Friedan
