I think it's worth noting that dissatisfied and unwillingly dependent 'housewives' didn't invent the mid-20th century legislative drive for equal access to the job market and equal pay for equal work--they were building on decades of labor activism by women of color and lower-working-class women, who had always had to work (at a very limited array of very low-paying jobs) in order to supplement their husbands' meager incomes. Self-sufficiency and personal fulfillment aren't incompatible goals, of course, but they don't necessarily automatically go together either.

How would you say you see this manifested? I can definitely see the first one--the 'you're nothing if a man doesn't want you' kind of socialization--but motherhood and full-time homemaking, I personally perceive as much less expected nowadays.
