Eastern European women’s values: They still believe in traditionalism

Most Eastern European ladies still have very traditional values. They want to take care of their husbands and children. They aren’t interested in competing with men in the workplace because they can’t see why masculine women are considered successful women.

“I’d like to be the supportive wife at home.”

Frankly, not all Eastern European women want to be housewives, but many of them still think being a housewife is actually a good idea because they have traditional values – they highly value virtue and motherhood.

With World War II over, women gave up their male jobs to make way for the men they had replaced. Governments and societies that only 5 years earlier had encouraged women to move into the paid workforce now presented a different view of women’s roles.

In 1950s Australia, education, patterns of paid employment, religion and social attitudes all reinforced the principle that a woman’s place is in the home. Her role was primarily to be a good wife and mother. From birth onwards, family, school, church and popular magazines trained girls to accept this view unquestioningly. Society expected women to conform to the idea of woman as homemaker, and it reflected this in its attitude towards women. Typical wedding vows had the female partner promise to love, honor and obey her husband while he promised only to love and honor his wife. The law reinforced women’s subservient role within marriage and within society by generally assuming that women required a male to look after their interests. The law provided little protection for women against males who failed to do so; in New South Wales, for example, rape within marriage did not become a criminal offence until 1981.

The nuclear family living in a home in the suburbs became the centerpiece of an image of security. Society expected men to participate in the public world of work and decision making, and women to provide a haven for them in the private sphere of the home. Advertising reinforced gender-role stereotyping and created a need for the products that reflected this outlook. The man would be the breadwinner and head of the house and the woman would seek satisfaction in the consumer products that aided her role. American television series like The Donna Reed Show and Father Knows Best provided

further role models that reflected this view and promoted the belief that happiness came from males and females living up to their assigned roles.

In the late 1940s and 1950s, girls school education incorporated the maintenance of traditional female skills in sewing and cooking and did little to promote the development of their technical and academic talents. The view generally accepted within society was that higher levels of education were wasted on girls, who would only be in the workforce for a short time before leaving to pursue their vocation in home-making. Boys strongly outnumbered girls in the senior years in high schools and at universities. This created barriers to women’s achievement of their potential and to the types of jobs for which they could train.

Many employers such as banks, the NSW postal service, and the Commonwealth public service (until 1966) would not employ married women in permanent positions and expected existing female employees to resign if they did marry. Some women proved that they had talents in areas beyond the confines of their traditional roles. In sport, Dawn Fraser and Shirley Strickland provided role models of strong and capable women. In the political arena, Dorothy Tangney and Enid Lyons began to tackle the unequal representation of women in parliament. In the arts, opera singer Joan Sutherland was establishing an outstanding stage and recording career.

Ukrainian women are the best wives.

Because of Ukrainian women’s value system, they are the best wives in the world, hands down. Frankly, they are not influenced by the cultural movement which happened in the 60s in western countries.

In many areas of the world, the 1960s was an era characterized by questioning of the political, economic and social status quo. It was a decade of protest, and many people demanded changes to society’s organization and priorities. Amid debate over civil rights, the pill, marijuana, conscription and the Vietnam War, women embarked on a campaign to have their rights recognized and to be liberated from the limitations associated with their traditional role. The movement became known as the Women’s Liberation Movement (WLM), and it became a force in Australia from the late 1960s onwards. Its supporters were known as women’s liberationists or women’s libbers. Australian singer Helen Reddy’s 1972 international hit song I Am Woman became a theme for the Women’s Liberation Movement. Accepting the 1973 Grammy award for it, Reddy thanked God because she makes everything possible, according to Retroactive 2.
