There was not much ambiguity about the way in which the Australian Women's Weekly presented gender roles in the 1950s. Men were breadwinners and women were housewives. In March 1959, though, the magazine ran a story which reflected changes and tensions around these roles. Entitled My Wife Works and I Hate It, it began: 'I don't mind women who work don't have to work - if they have to. Let's be clear about that. But many women who work don't have to work o and my wife is one of them'.
