Fashions and trends come and go, and some of them effectively pass the test of time and are still present nowadays, but it’s undeniable that many look intriguingly ridiculous when seen with today’s eyes. What’s interesting is that some of the norms from 50 years ago show with clarity the strict requirements and expectations that fell upon women’s lives. Most of these outrageous gender regulations were slowly changed thanks to a liberation movement that started in the ’60s, so don’t miss this trip across a world-changing decade! Don’t forget to check #7 and #3 for some of the most absurd norms.
