Hi Brenda: Like you I am not certain that change is evolution or is it
social evolution? Anyway I am 61 years old and can recall when it was
considered highly immoral for women to wear lipstick and makeup or smoke
in public.  Only "bad" girls or prostitutes went into bars and lounges
without a male escort in my area. Boys were sissies if they danced and
there were a number of other things which are greatly different today.
Girls who drove were cautious unlike today's sweet young things who buzz
down the interstate at 75+ mph. When the change or social evolution took
place I could not date but this was the situation in East central Ohio
in 1949-55. This could have been a regional situation but I suspect it was
national in scope.  Perhaps some others may have some ideas on the subject.
  Ray, EKU
