Not too long ago the vast majority of women stayed home and didn't have an outside job. The division of labor worked quite well with men working outside and women inside the home. Then some shrieking harridans of the 1960s got the bright idea to turn everything inside out and ruin families by convincing women that they were oppressed by being mothers and wives. Why any woman listened to these idiots and followed them like lemmings over a cliff is baffling.
Thanks to the harridans guilting mothers into the outside workforce, prices of housing, cars, etc.increased greatly because now there were two incomes. The economic powers-that-be jacked up prices of products because they saw they could afford to pay more.
