Throwback Thursday Women and Computers

June 19, 2014

Although nothing beats a little 1960s flavored casual sexism, advertisements like this one are a stark reminder of how much women's roles in business have changed since the mid-century.Elarbee Media is a female-owned business, so we are certainly glad that the "norm" has shifted. Gone are the days of women only being viewed as capable of holding support positions; we are now the ones creating the ads, planning the buys and calling the shots. Our business may have a softer edge than some, and a mentoring rather than driving character, but for us that is how a business ought to be run.
I do want to point out that the hairstyle, dress and shoes are right up my alley, and if I could throw back to the fashions and work hours of the time without the sexism, I’d be all in.‪#‎ThrowbackThursday‬
