This advertisement is from the 1950’s.  I understand that during this time the picture perfect family and wife was “in style”. But was domestic violence included? How could this ad even be published? It is full of sexism and domestic violence. The wife did not get coffee that satisfies her husband so she gets beat?

It just makes me wonder what was going through the minds of the advertising department of Chase and Sanborn back then. If someone even suggested an ad that had a similar content in today’s world they may get fired.
