This sexist* ad is probably from the 1930s. Here are the first two paragraphs of copy:
He was a highly eligible bachelor. And she had made swift progress till that awful day when she slipped getting out of the roadster. Her ankle twisted. She screamed. In a second he had jerked off her shoe — and stocking. With a sinking heart she watched his fingers test her ankle, saw that he was staring at her foot with its twisted toes and stumpy nails, swollen arch and calloused feet. Her feet were terrible!
He was very nice, those days while her ankle mended... But that was really the end... During the summer she read of his engagement to a Baltimore girl.
* This ad would be considered sexist because it implies young women are obsessed with snaring a man.
The telephone can be a wife's best friend. Helps her get everything done. Saves her wrinkles. Saves her time. Saves her budget, too. A bargain without the hunting. We may be the only phone company in town, but we try not to act like it.
In case you're wondering why this old AT&T ad would be considered a sexist ad, one reason is that it supports the notion that being a wife is the defining role of a woman.
