Maude Jones – Housewife

“The problem lay buried, unspoken for many years in the minds of American women. It was a strange stirring, a sense of dissatisfaction, a yearning that women suffered in the middle of the twentieth century in the United States. Each suburban housewife struggled with it alone. As she made the beds, shopped for groceries, matched slipcover material, ate peanut butter sandwiches with her children, chauffeured Cub Scouts and Brownies, lay beside her husband at night, she was afraid to ask even of herself the silent question: ‘’Is this all?’’”

Maude is immaculately styled for her times. Her hair—bright blonde (supposedly not bleached) is carefully put in to curlers every night. Her face is made up, her eyes are blue, her lips red. She’s always in dresses that, while not the height of fashion, are bought from the store so that they’re slightly worn, and always in heels. She has a set of pearls her husband gave her for an anniversary before they died. Lately, she’s looking a bit harried and worried.
