sitcom, there was the hiding of situation reality such as race and economic status. One could see the children of the 1950s happy despite their poverty ( Mills, 69). However, currently, everything is demonstrated openly, and the children express their dissatisfaction openly or on social media and women on their ambitions. In conclusion, during the World War II era to the Baby Boomers era, there were numerous changes regarding the role played by women in society. Women were not allowed to engage themselves in other activities other than engage themselves in activities other than their roles as housewife, mothers, and wife such as in the "I Love Lucy" sitcom. However, the same cannot be said to today’s sitcom, such as "Modern Family," where there is the exploration of diverse processes and lifestyles for women, such as participating in politics. Their roles changed to be slightly dominant as they used to serve men in the ancient days. The changes were as a result of propaganda demonstrated on TV shows. Thus, mass media was essential in changing feminine mystique within society.

    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.
