February 27, 2008 - Whole idea that the 1950s was a decade of conservatism with the development of ideas of domesticity. - On the other side, shortly after the 1950s there were ideas of a much more liberal approach to all kinds of moral issues like abortion, homosexuality etc. - There is not overall blueprint for these types of policies and they took place over the whole of western Europe. - Over 1960s is when most of this took place - These are legal changes in official policy not necessarily about attitude. - Gallup Organization - polling data back into the 30s and 40s to track changes in attitudes towards all kinds of moral, political and social issues. - If you look at social issues like attitudes towards abortion and contraception, women’s employment and these kinds of issues, you find that there is a real evil notion at the time in a much more liberal direction people are much more accepting of things over time. It is not a linear change, tends to be a fluctuating line according to people’s experience. - Shift in opinions about broad social issues. - Things are now viewed much more liberally. - We think of the 1960s when these changes took place, this is thought as a period dominated by young people. - We associate the 60s with youth culture, - Changes that were put into place were put in place by men that are 40-50 years old.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
